+ *compress* is divided between Compressors and Archivers. While you have
+ to get an Archiver from a factory when just archiving one or more files
+ to the target file (tar), you'll need a Compressor for reducing the files size (bzip2).
+ Please note:
+ There are discussion of "sponsoring" compress with code from TrueZip (
+ and of enhancing compress design. At the moment the current implementation
+ is considered as complex by some people. An deeper look at compress implementation
+ can be found on the CompressImplementationDetails page.
  == Archiver ==
  To pack an archive, you have to get an archiver via the ArchiverFactory. At the moment it's
possible to get a "zip" or a "tar" archiver. Add your files to the archiver and call save
