Basically, it's the free counter-part of rar, but with Unicode support
and even better compression. Since it's pretty much the next-gen zip,
I thought it would be better to provide that instead of a zip. It's
not a big issue (I hope) because the usual tgz is available as well
and people who can compile surely know how to use one of them. On the
compression/bandwidth-saving side, the same data in zip would take 1.4
Mb as opposed to the 570 Kb of the 7z.
So, 7z <3
