Re: Akka

Dear Phactorial,  
what do you think how long it will take you to implement the on-thy-fly  
decompression. I want to know since i have to decide whether to put akka as  
last shot to the distro or have to make more work.  
In all cases i will try it out soon. But i think the decompression routines  
helps akka to be more standard complain, at least it doesn't break kbd  
directory style for one app. ;-)
