was just dling it myself, but i guess josh beat me to it. :)
the dll will only fix loading, not saving. Saving is done currently
using a pipe to gzip, which would be usable on windows if we packaged
the gzip exe with IS, except I cant get the pipe to work from IS. It
works fine in a standalone piece of code, but falls over in the
I dont see how svgz ever makes it into the drop down list, as the
routine that builds the list from the extensions specifically ignores
it, (looks like a c+p error to me but I'm assured it works on linux so
am kinda confused.)
the thing with the pipes means that none of the external extensions
will work on windows as far as i can tell, which is something we really
need to fix.
