What's Tahoe's required overhead?  Is it static (5KB, regardless of
partition size), or does it grow with the reserved space (2% from 0 -
5 GB, 3% for > 5GB)?  My biggest concern with this is space, as the
2GB microSD card the DreamPlug comes with is tough to manage.  If we
can use the SD card slot when it's available, this'll be less of a
problem, but I haven't really thought about that problem yet.
