looking into a PCD-type scheme. Support for large images is getting more important as the years go by. We've currently got a real problem when

It may seem counter-intuitive, but I think that image file growth may peak in the next few years. The reason for this theory is that CPUs continually grow faster while image pixel counts increase but disk I/O performance has not increased so spectacularly.

It is bit off topic but interesting with regard to disk I/O. Vibrating disks instead of rotating disks could be a disruptive storage technology:

The parallel nature of these disks made me wonder if there are compression schemes that could take advantage of the fact that a growing number of computers will have dual (or more) cores which makes parallel compression and decompression possible.
