Compress folders

Would it be possible to load the entire folder into a custom property on
a stack, compress the stack - then do the reverse upon uncompressing?

Or...

Write a script to compress each file in a folder, create a folder on the
server, and copy each compressed file to that folder?

Well, on the Mac side, you could use the "zip" utility, which is a 
terminal command (use the shell() f'n in Rev).

On the PC side, you would need to provide such a tool for the program 
(download one to a known location), but there are a number of them 
around.
