I was looking around for a compressed filesystem for linux. NT has had compressed file systems for a while, hell even DOS had a compression option. I didn't find a quick solution for linux, but I did find zlibc which lets you use gzip transparently. Use that and a simple gzip * in a data directory could save you a lot of space. Now on to find a full compressed file system.
