 Announce: Compress::Array and Compress::Hash

Compress::Array and Compress::Hash are two small pure-perl modules that
automatically compress arrays and hashes in memory and uncompress them
when they're needed.  These modules are useful when

o  You're running short of memory and don't mind burning some extra
   CPU cycles; and

o  You have one or more large arrays or hashes containing long,
   compressible strings.

Compressed arrays and hashes can be used exactly as normal, making it
easy to retrofit the new modules to old programs that are running out of

You can download the modules at
< http://www.*-*-*.com/ ~laker/perl/modules/>.  You can
modify and/or redistribute them on the same terms as Perl itself.
You'll need Compress::Zlib and the zlib compression library, which
actually do all the clever work behind the two new modules.

Since this is new code (whoop! whoop! whoop!) I'd appreciate feedback.
Mind the spamtrap.
