I did bzip2 without any flags and it compressed to 710 MB--not really worth the trouble of having to decompress on the receiving end. Same result with standard "zip". I think this thing is already pretty compressed. When remastersys is creating the .iso, it runs a program called "squash," (I think that's what it's called) which is why it's only 717 MB instead of the 2.7 GB that it becomes when installed on the hard drive.
