Well I should have better formulated my question. I'm more interested to
know if gzip solves the compression dilemma and if Debian packages use
it regardless how. There was a discussion about a blocking algorithms
which should solve the dilemma. From the tests I made this algorithmus
either does not work or is not implemented or packages don't use it. Of
course my tests might be wrong but I don't think so.
