Currently I thought only about bzip2/gzip. Probably .xz support would
follow if any.
LZO, as you said, is on GPL-2. While I have no problems with GPL-2 some
potential users may (Haskell tend to be BSD3 community). Does anyone
knows if conditional compilation solves problem? In my interpretation of
GPL-2 yes but I'm not sure.
