I hate to show my ignorance; but I'm not understanding the advantages 
of this approach.  All I want is a utility that can 
compress/decompress individual text files & stacks across all 
platforms supported by RunRev...though I'm adding support for Mac 
files with resource forks for completeness.  I don't see editing as 
coming into play here.
