Personal opinion: I've never been involved with Commons VFS but was
under the impression it already contained a backend for compress. And if
VFS was the high leel API it would feel more natural for its
implementation to live in VFS as well.

File system has never occured to me as an abstraction for things I do to
an archive, that may have been short-sighted.

Either of these options would rule out anything for the 1.17 release but
there is no need to rush anything.
