This is brilliant Friedrich.

One thought: what about s3 (or similar) for permanence (as opposed to
local disk) - this seems like important resources and having them
preserved would be good.

Also, some ideas (feel free to shoot down!):

* What about one directory per dataset for consistency.
* What about adding some datapackage.json style metadata in each
directory (i volunteer to do this)
* If on s3 we could still have a nice index page with a small
index.json file and some js (again i volunteer)
