Sorry if I'm entering in this discussion that late, i were away for a long time from the project and discussions here.
Looking to the discussion i can understand both points of view, i like readibility and i hate loose space on my HD.
Since we are talking about a file format change and a rewrite, was already weighted the possibility of take advantage of wxwidgets 
using wxZlib(Input/Output)Stream and/or wxString::Printf  ?
We could also thing about a successive expansion and use Zip format instead storing multiple versions of the project and/or to add library cache in the future.

Just my 5c,
