   i'd like to propose to replace our gzip(1) with openbsd's compress(1).
   because, IMO, it's far better structured than ours.
   i put it on
   any opinions?

i don't really care what happens as long as the feature set isn't
broken.  that includes -DSMALL version of gzip for install media
that isn't really any bigger, bzip2 support, complete compat with
GNU gzip, and probably more i can't remember.  when i last looked
at openbsd compress none of these were true.
