Simplifying is always good :)

That can come later I think. If VFS doesn't need them, we can plan
them for a later release is my opinion.

Worth doing before a release.

Do you mean rewrite javadoc?

0.1 release could be at any point I think - only at 1.0 is there any
promise. However I can't recall what the thoughts are on doing 0.1
releases in the sandbox. I know we're against doing releases until
something has shown that it has community interest. Compress has
yourself and Mario currently; so that's a start.

People know what it means though, and the name has traction. Renaming
just to try and find something generic that can mean compressing and
archiving will be a struggle.
