:I just noticed I still have these sitting here so I figured I would post
:sizes. 1.12.1 ISO 294M, bz2 108M, 7z 74M, zip 118M, gz 120M.

    Those are impressive numbers.  I will keep an eye on it.  If 7z is
    consistently better then bz2 I expect it will become widely adopted.

    I just think it is a bit early to put it into base when it is so
    readily accessible via pkgsrc.
