[Q] e2image: tools for sparse files & e2sfck support



Hi, 

i have two twofold e2image related questions:

1)  The man page mentions "cp (1)"'s --sparse=always option.  I
    wonder if there are sparse aware tools which

    a) display the "real" amount of disk space occupied by a
       sparse file

    b) compress sparse files (other than compressing very
       thightly several GiB of zeros)


2)  "E2fsck, mke2fs, etc. will now reliably notice when image
    files are mounted using the loopback interface.  (Addresses
    Sourceforge bug #619119)" (quoted from RELEASE-NOTES.gz)

    a) Is e2fsck now able to use (raw) e2images while repairing ext2
       file systems?

    b) Is this also useful for ext3 file systems?




Thanks for developing e2-tools and for the the great support in
this list, Gregor
