I thought there was a consensus to allow breaking public classes clearly
identified as internal such as this one. The Javadoc clearly state:

"This class is only public for technical reasons and is not part of
Commons Compress' published API - it may change or disappear without

And now we can't change it? Sorry but if someone used it this isn't our
problem, he has been warned and will have to fix his code.
