Whatever the qualities OpenBSD's compress(1) might be, I don't think
this is doable. NetBSD 2.0 (remember, we'll release it some day) will
ship with mrg's gzip(1), and we'd better keep it around for some time
in -current or we'll have to support 3 different versions of gzip(1)
in each of our branch. I mean, it's already a nightmare...
