It is possible already, when you exit to the bash shell, so maybe it is
not urgent. I agree there should be choices in a dialog screen
(compression method as well as the name of the target file.) I think
also choice of source partition should be possible at that dialog screen.

I think the most urgent improvement is to make a Lubuntu 13.10 OEM
tarball. Would you agree or where do you think I should start?

Best regards
