1. it is most efficient around all programs around, either open-source
or commercial: http://www.maximumcompression.com/data/summary_mf2.php#data

2. compression libs used in freearc all written in C++. the only good
thing is that i provide Haskell interface to these libs:

it really may be good idea to use, say, grzip instead of bzip2 to
compress patch files, but i don't think this is highly important. at
least interface is simple
