@glyph it's just compression. guess the downside is slower startup of binaries if they're going to be launched a ton, like a shell utility or something, but it's a really simple compression algo and the decompression overhead is pretty irrelevant
yeah that's what i thought too; decompression overhead is basically negligible (especially in my intended use-cases).
stoked to have found such a simple way make binaries smaller :)
