There was a thread about this way back (started by me!!!...I must be
getting old) about dumping to another filesystem.
http://lists.laptop.org/pipermail/devel/2009-May/024459.html The code
mentioned in this thread was in the context of the school server and
was written in Mono. This was also before we shipped GNOME + Sugar, so
the context was a bit different.
