Public bug reported:

Currently gzip is the only compression choice.   Novice Windows users
usually have a zip utility available but may not be able to easily
install another utility like 7-Zip that can handle gzip.

Also, bzip2 (or other compression utility) may be a better compression
choice than gzip for very active mailing lists
