So, I've no idea how that guy managed to squeeze it down so much, but
after a week of importing (and a hour or so compressing) I got down to
930Mb, which is pretty close to what Donnie managed earlier.  I can do
increments pretty easily now, and I'm having a go repacking it at
- --window=100 (I don't want to push the depth up much more since it has
an affect on decompression).  Also, it's all in one big pack file, which
may not be ideal.  So all in all, my experiments didn't turn up anything
new, but nevermind...  5:)
