I made some tests with maximum compression. Results sorted by size Based on
these, 1.44 could contain more few essential modules like e100 / eepro100
and other things.

That *.lzop was included because I wanted to see how an algorithm
optimized for speed would do.
So, How would I make BL3 use rzip during unpacking the disk2?
