That's not enough. I want the output of all commands (messages,
documents, calculations, notes and error reports) to be stored on
increasingly mainstream terabyte disks along with enough metadata to
uniquely identify it. "Modification" is superseding a file with a
derivation. Derivatives that do not supersede any other file need also
be stored, whether they be drafts for future supersedes or files on
their own.
