Hi Darius,

I haven't forgotten about that component either... :-)  We simply
haven't reached that stage in our project yet.  We will be using
TZipFile for a custom compressed help format (something like OOo help)
and for storing our teaching modules (a maths tutoring system).

I would also like to incorporate 7zip compression support with the
existing ZLib compression.  I found a Object Pascal implementation of
7zip the other day.
