The quicklz package

[Tags: gpl, library]

This package provides a high level binding to the QuickLZ ( library for ByteStrings, under the GPLv2. QuickLZ is fast and compresses very well.

This package includes the QuickLZ source code, with compression level 1 and streaming currently disabled.

The versioning scheme for this package is unusual. QuickLZ trys to be as fast as possible, and will break backwards compatibility to achieve it in new versions. This versioning scheme reflects the QuickLZ versioning scheme: the first three digits of version w.x.y.z digits are the quicklz version, with the z component (and any further needed ones) being updates to this package, not the underlying version.
