I'm not against this. Commons packages have to walk a fine line between
too many classes in the package [ie bloating] and too little [ie
considered to be useless and small].

The questions are, would compression algorithms be a minor part of codec,
would users want to only use the compression algorithms, would codec get
too bulky if it took on all compressions.
