There's supposed to be a trade off between compression and runtime speed 
unless this is another performance tuning rule that doesn't apply anymore.
   I've always wondered what difference to performance it would make to:

	a) Merge all the jar files together into one (uncompressed) file.
	b) Extract out all the jar files into the same filespace and run them 
outside of a jar.

Unfortunately I've never had time to give it a try!
