Store Developer docs on a compressed disk image

While this may not save much, you can apply similar logic to any place where a large number of mainly text files are stored. For instance, you can use this method, coupled with a shadow file (see the man page for hdiutil) to have most of your mail messages on a compressed disk image (new ones would be put in the shadow file).
