This really gets at what I've been thinking. Compress and VFS are strongly
related, and both could likely benefit from adopting the Java NIO2 API.
That doesn't even begin to touch things like using off-heap byte buffers
and native codec libraries and such (e.g., using the unsafe variant of XZ's
API), nor does it touch async file APIs and other goodies.
