Thanks for your feedback and comments, it's very valuable to me.
In my previous message, I mentioned that CPU is *underutilized* during
installation. I haven't investigated further why, but I suspect it's due to
the inefficiency caused by the usage of the *loop* device and/or
inefficiency in the rsync itself.
We might be able to do somewith nbdkit inside the installer to
transparently uncompress and loop mount at the same time. (Although
this would require xz, not zstd because of a missing feature in zstd -
see my other comment in this thread).
