OK, time for the stupid question.
Wouldn't it be easier to teach the client program (for example
OpenOffice) to be able to save in in a non-compressed way? An example
(although NOT open in any way like OO) is Microsoft InfoPath whose doc
is a cab file, consisting of xml files. This program can save
uncompressed, probably so that you can store it in a VCS and really see
the differences. Why not pose this req. on OpenOffice?
