I'm remembering slowly, zlib is for handling gzip format, pkzip format
is still missing. And 7zip, does it have it's own format or is this used
for the common ".zip"-files?

If I would want to complete the component, I'd try to use and maybe add
something to the unit I've already found in packages/extra/unzip. At
least the compression routines should do.
