IIRC, Stefan wrote a small code snippet which scans NEWS files and tries
to determine, when a Lisp object was added to Emacs. I don't know
whether this would still work with compressed NEWS files.

Given, that disk space of 1 MB is nothing today, I'm not in favour of
such a compression. I don't know what it is good for, honestly.
