Off-topic, but it's mainly for two reasons:
|What's the qualifier here?|
You like *.uci but not *.unc? You shirk *.dsl but not *.tgz?
1) *.dsl runs mkwriteable, which adds more of the system into ram, including the extension itself. The tar.gz extensions also increase ram use, but they do not run mkwriteable and are very easily removed when I'm through with them.
2) Unionfs (unc requirement) breaks midnight commander's subshell feature, which I use constantly.
Gotcha. Cool enough.
And are you calling out my question as Off Topic? That seems to be unlike the ever-helpful and friendly mikshaw we all know and love here.
Heavens to Murgatroid!
