Arvados should be able to cat/zcat files in collections easily
I have 8 lanes of paired end fastq files, and I would like to combine all the lanes together into one big sample. I don't want to manually cat them, as that could take upwards of 12 hours.

Support for server-side (manifest-based) concatenation seems like a potentially useful feature to have, although I'm wary of the `zcat` support unless it is also just an underlying manifest concatenation. If non-trivial operations such (re)compression need to be exposed via the FUSE interface, I'd suggest the use of more generic support for running pipelines via keep such as that proposed in story 10388.
