Ok, this is a bug that was partially improved for u1 but some of the
improvements were parked until u2 because were too invasive at the
time. Current joyride should be better and one more fix is about to
land in there.

What cannot be fixed in sugar is the time that takes to be written and
read from flash. Not compressing the zip would help on that. Any
chance we can get into the august release the ability to mark files in
jffs2 as "don't compress please"?
