Just to throw the question out there ....

We use Chilkat for many things but a couple of them are for the creation and handling GZip / Zip files and strings

With the growing emphasis on web technologies and these compression's are commonly used when transferring data or creating files to be transferred is this something DAW would consider providing an in the box solution for ?

Or more generally considering Chilkat is quite well used in the community (and they have made changes specifically to help with Dataflex integration in the past and have a specific help section) is a stronger business relationship with them along the lines of CJ / Codemax etc a possibility DAW would consider ?

I believe it is becoming a reasonable sized 3rd party dependency within our community in the medium to long term ?

I have no connection with them beyond using their products and having a good customer support relationship with them
