    Instead of this 7zip shit.

      Compare the sizes.

      Oh look.

      7-zip kicks old-style zip's ass.

      In that example, in the src package RAR seems to beat 7zip (72 KB vs 73 KB), but if PPMD compression method is used, 7zip shrinks the file to 61 KB !!  (compare to zip's 127 KB)

        RAR is not *FREE*, but 7-zip is free.

      So I've been using the wrong algorithm for my source package, and I'm STILL getting better compression results than traditional zip.

      Good to know.
