What's a webcomp?  You can load the initial contents of the website from
an uncompressed tar image in ROM.

The contents of the files are used from the tar image but the filesystem
is actually the IMFS with the contents loaded from that image still in
the ROM.

So you can load a website/filesystem with a starting set of files and
generate others on the fly.

There is an example in the network-demos which does all this.
