I have played around with the two fuse modules. There is also
fusecompress: http://miio.net/fusecompress/

I know I am going a little off topic, but what I am waiting for is a
fuse compression module that will allow me to write the data to the
disk uncompressed (instead of compressed like the two fuse modules do
now) but allow me to run a cron job to compress the data at a later
time using lzma set at its maximum. Although I have other uses for
that, I think that would be very good in for using with bacula volumes
if I keep them only a few GB. Now only if I had free time to modify
fusecompress and implement that...
