+redundancy reduction to improve the subsequent compression ratio of
+larger files.  It can then further compress the result with the ZPAQ or
+LZMA algorithms for maximum compression, or LZO for maximum speed.  This
+choice between size or speed allows for either better compression than
+even LZMA can provide, or a higher speed than gzip while compressing as
+well as bzip2.")
