Does Pyfits support the internally compressed FITS files described in 
this link

http://ledas-www.star.le.ac.uk/lheasoft/fitsio/compression/compress_image.html

of which I see Perry is a co-author?  Of course, reading such files is 
one thing, having software to write them quite another.  CFITSIO can do 
it, I think.
