I don't understand "The disadvantage of [cloop] is that the entire image must fit into memory in order to be uncompressed": is it a reference to the sentence "Make sure you have enough swap to hold the entire compressed image in virtual memory!" in the README and web page?
Looking at the source code suggests that this is no longer necessary; though I haven't tried.
