I assumed that we already agreed on that. But I really don't care about this 
to discuss this to death. If we think we should support several compression 
types right now I can add it. Though I still think it's easier to just agree 
on one. (which doesn't mean that we can switch again in 2030 when a smart guy 
discovers an even more efficient algorithm ;-))
