It seems dump is not available for ext4 at present anyway, so I'm stuck
with something else. I'm still somewhat curious what the actual benefit
is. I saw some vague references to speed improvements (meh, it runs at
night) and a comparison done on BSD systems in 1991. Other than that,
there doesn't seem to be much info on why it is a better choice, just
that it works differently.
