Have you considered adding such features to PUPA? They would be equaly useful

If you have some ideas, you should be pointing them out.

I don't see the problem with that. I don't think Okuji will like tarfs or
paxfs in GRUB 0.9x but it's probably welcome in PUPA.

Btw, I recall that the GNU system doesn't have any native filesystem yet. For
example we have gnu ext2fs and gnu ufs (filesystem servers, both part of the
Hurd package)
