Up late; started measuring up for fire-door; poked at E-mail while H.
slept. Giuseppe from Mdk pointed me at: 7zip
<http://p7zip.sourceforge.net/> which (apparently) gives a 20% size
reduction on an OO.o source archive over bzip2 - which is pretty
impressive, or speaks volumes about duplicated file count.
I wonder if it takes more resources then bzip2 for decompressing.
Otherwise it would be interesting to use for deb packages.
