Why not attach those bitmaps to the files in an extended attribute?

This was discussed as part of the thread and I meant to mention it in the article.  The basic
problem is that most filesystems limit xattrs to 4K (total for keys and data) and they are not
stored with the inode so a seek must be done to get to them.
