Great! Do you prefer the short option to be "-k" or "-K" ?

Eric suggested "-k", similar to what bzip2 and friends use. I have used "-K" to
avoid overlapping with pkzip (currently not being used). But I have no problem
using "-k" or "-K".

Something like: "Keep (don't delete) input files during compression or
decompression." is okay ?

If the scanned version of the signed papers is enough, sure (depending on what I
have to sign, of course :-D). But I don't mind if you do it yourself (it's
probably easier, as the patch is very simple)

Please let me know if you are doing the change, or if you prefer I do it and
send me whatever I have to sign :)

Thanks a lot, really
