One very important thing to remember about the current version of MacGZIP 
that exists on the Mac is that is will NOT compress dual-fork files. This
means that files with resource forks (applications, and certain types of
data files) will not be compressed. In fact, the resource fork is destroyed.
So, use MacGZIP only on files with data forks (e.g. text).
