This is an LZMA2-based sub-library for XPK.  LZMA2 is an updated
version of LZMA (Lempel-Ziv-Markov) which in turn is based on the
popular LZ77 algorithm.

LZMA2 is usually found within the XZ container format, which is
effectively what this packer is using.

Compression modes (IMPORTANT!)
==============================

Modes 1-79 and 100 are recognised.  80-99 should be treated as
reserved (the compression parameters for these are undefined).

The first digit of the mode is the amount of compression, from 0-7.

Extra filters are used depending on the last digit of the mode:
x0 - no filters
x1 - delta with distance 1
x2 - delta with distance 2
x3 - delta with distance 3
x4 - delta with distance 4
x9 - PowerPC

Modes ending 5-8 are also using the PowerPC filter, but may not
do so in future.

Mode 100 is the same as mode 70, but with "extreme" set. This
gives more compression but slower.

The delta modes help compress data that changes slowly - eg, an 8-bit
sound sample might be compressed better with delta1. A photograph in
raw ARGB might compress better with delta4.  The PowerPC filter should
be used for PPC executables.  Selecting the wrong filter may have a
detrimental effect on compression ratios.

Compression is generally better than xpkLZMA, particularly if the correct
filters are deployed, however it tends to be slightly slower.

Here's some example compression for lzma.library:
As this is PPC code, modes ending in 9 are better than modes ending 0, and
the delta modes actually reduce the amount of compression attainable.

X1000 users
===========

I've been advised that this sub-lib is very slow when packing on an X1000.
I believe this is because lzma.library when compiled was built to use
instructions which cause an exception on the PA6T.  I have yet to find
the correct compiler switches which fix this as well as producing a working
lzma.library.
