I am not sure I totally agree here. Last time I looked it was pretty  
much a one-man show from the original author. I wanted to provide a  
patch for some feature. It did not fit into his vision of truezip. So  
I left. (Did I hear someone say fork?) IMO extending is  
also a very questionable design approach. But anyway - the problem  
with this is that with truezip being available there are even less  
people eager to work on compress for the most simple things  
there is truezip available.

My 2 cents
