> One question: How big is your disk page size?

My disk page size is 512.  However, the object of the compression here has
nothing to do with saving disk space.  The intent here is speeding up
internet download of an AutoRunning EXE that has Python DLLs and support
libraries included.

Perhaps, I should have stated my reasons for wanting to strip comments out
up front.  I apparently caused everyone who responded to question whether my
objective made any sense at all.  In retrospect, I should have stated my
larger objective (speeding internet upload/download) in addition to my
narrower objective (stripping comments for maximal compression).  I am sorry
for an misunderstanding.
