Bug#698256: ITP: lz4 -- Extremely Fast Compression algorithm library

 Description     : Extremely Fast Compression algorithm library

LZ4 is a very fast lossless compression algorithm.
This uses Dictionary compression, and only supports compression and decompression unit blocks.

This looks very promising, but also immature. The upstream makefile doesn't build a shared library, not even a static library, but only an executable ("lz4demo"). Are there any plans to change that?
