There is really shockingly small overhead for the single-file format.
At the mean time, converting things between the debian-folder and
single-file formats is really quick, smooth and easy with fold[1] and
unfold[2]. The only problem there is the conversion will fail if binary
blobs exist (not supported yet).

    	echo "^ $file"
    	cat $file
