I disagree.  Given that ICS is essentially undocumented, if people have 
to go searching through dozens of demo applications to find the 
compression code, they simply won't do it.  ICS is supposed to be high 
level components that include such functionality.  

Since Zlib is part of the VCL in Delphi 7 and later, and 2006 has the 
latest version, it makes sense to simply use the VCL, in exactly the 
same way as we use the VCL for numerous other things.  Assuming it's 
implements the features we need.  

If some developers are not satisfied with the VCL ZLIB, they can 
override the components and include whatever code they want.  I'm not 
sure of the ZLIB state in Delphi 6 and earlier, I think it needed to be 
installed separately, but since I seem to be only one here that using 
anything older than Delphi 7 (which I'm now migrating away from), it 
probably does not matter.
