Hi Gábor,

This wouldn’t always be feasible, because it would require *manual*
reference tracking.  The packager would need to know what references
need to be retained and then ensure that they are part of that text

We had the same problem with gzipped R files and zipped Python things.
For the R files a more advanced reference scanner would not work,
because the files just include a gzipped section; it’s not the whole
file that’s simply gzipped.  Detecting sections is too hard.

But for Python and Jars it might just be enough.
