Oh, why do we have arbitrary compression anyways, btw? :) (Arbitrary
because there is no explicit standard in the specs, as far as I know,
which can easily lead to completely different CHKs for the same file
across different versions, if the settings are even slightly changed
(ie. slightly different compression algorithm/level, or threshold for
using it, or explicit user choice, etc.)) Is the massive computer and
time overhead really necessary to reduce filesizes by 1%? (I assume
jpeg and zip and mpeg4 etc compression algorithms are already good
enough? And why the heck is all this massive overhead done THREE
times? Are gzip bzip and lzma really all /that/ different??)
