I like the idea of a single camel-compress component which offers a
range of compression libraries.
It would be too fine grained having a single component for: tar, zip,
rar, bzip2 and whatnot exists.

Does Apache Commons supports a uniform API for these underlying
compression libraries?

Yeah I doubt there is too much code needed to bridge Camel with these
compression libraries.

Yeah if we could make a new camel-compression component that host all
the new data formats for compression.
Then we can @deprecate or what makes the most sense the old data formats.

I gotta take a closer look at his suggestion.
