Are we getting to the point that we want a compresslib like hashlib if we are going to be adding more compression algorithms?
It may be useful as a generic abstraction wrapper for simple usage but some compression libraries have custom facilities that would still require a dedicated interface.
For example, LZ4 has two formats: a raw format and a framed format. Zstandard allows you to pass a custom dictionary to optimize compression of small data. I believe lzma has many tunables.
