Re: Autoexpanding ZIP archives?

The reason that OO.o compresses the documents is because xml tends to be
very verbose in text form, so compressing it saves a TON of space. It
would be nice to be able to save all that space in the working copy by
leaving the files compressed, without having it foul up the deltas in
the repository. Best of both worlds that way.

Of course, if binary xml ( ASN.1 probably ) is ever adopted, this
problem could go away.
