That page has compression and decompression speeds, putting 7zip at
about 40% slower than bzip2 and 90% slower than gzip. The
decompression speed of 7zip is better than bzip2 but still nothing to
write home about.

Anyone know a good heuristic for measuring bang for buck for
compression algorithms?

Have a nice day,
