Bug#1883: compress" missing?

Using compress (but not uncompress) infringes on Welch's patent.  Perhaps
it could be made available under "non-free"?  As far as I understand, there
are no retrictions on its distribution -- just its use.

                                 ( bcwhite@bnr.ca )

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
