how about one top-level file which has all the statistics..

you could just print all the numbers, space-delimited, followed by the
path.  then it's easy to format in whatever way we desire with sort and
such.  maybe put #comments at the top explaining the field ordering.

such a file will compress well and have none of the blocking problems.


p.s. note that files with \n in their name would pose troubles unless you
used \0 delimited records.  but i'm not sure if even gnu sort has a way to
handled \0 delimited records, d'ohh.
