I remmeber once making a large file on my windows machne, on a share
smbmount-ed by my linux box. A file from windows was then crypto-fs
loop-back mounted as a dos device and then samba exported back to windows.
It had my mp3s on it (from my own CD's but to avoid "sharing" then illegally
I couldn't use reiserfs because mkreiserfs would "grow" the image file, why
the loopback driver allowed this is beyond me!
