e2compr did indeed use chattr in this fashion. In addition, you
could select the compression method and compression cluster size
with chattr. I think that tweaking the cluster size would allow
you to tweak the effectiveness of compression vs speed of reading
a "random" block. The cluster size was either 4, 8, 16 or 32
blocks per cluster.
FYI, here's a link for e2compr's manual:
