Perhaps that's what Francesc was intending to say, but he wrote "At
any rate, adding compression capability to .npy should be just one
parameter away, so perhaps is a good idea adding it." So that's what I
was responding to. Yes, adding regular ZIP compression to .npz files
should be just one parameter away without much thought.
