Nothing - they are all small. My only guess is that all the pList files for
all applications ever installed are stored. All these files "may" be indexed
in some way - as a "defaults read" returns output from all the preference
files - which makes me think that it may not be compression exactly but a
searchable binary format of some kind - at least i cant figure out what
compression is used or why a standard compression is not used.
