I understand that feasibility could be a concern in the sense that "we cut
down memory usage without *any* loss in performance* because that would
depend on how well we can tune the cache. I was thinking that the file
backing the tvbuff would be a separate file and not the capture file. In
that case, encryption and compression of capture file wouldn't matter. Am I
missing something here?

On second thoughts, we don't need a separate file for backing up the tvb.
But, if the file is compressed etc then the cache misses are going to be
more costly. So, I get what you mean't there.
