Idea: How about adding support for the 7z format[1] for archiving saved  
games? 7z is very effective (in my experience) when archiving similar  
files together, so it would be a great fit with Freeciv saves. The idea of  
course is to continuously append the last save to a single .7z for one  
full game.

Pros:
* Save disk space
* Relieve filesystem clutter

Questionmarks:
* Processor overhead when appending new savs?
* Integration with UI?
* Lib availability in distros?
