hm ok. sounds all very reasonable. I just saw that thing with extending
java.io.File... don't like this either, but didn't see it when
skimming bout the code.

How about implementing the delete feature into compress, your comments
and some housekeeping stuff and doing a 0.1 release? When compress
is in a maven repository once people will get used to it and the component
may get more attention. Maybe we can borrow one or two features from
TrueZip (i really
love ASF license :-)) to make it more attractive.

When i am thinking about it, there are four people always talking
about compress: Mario and you as Apache committers, Will and me as
contributers. Guess thats enough for this component. :-)

Best,
Chris
