Support LZMA(7-zip) for backup and archiving
LZMA is the most recent compression algorithm. LZMA is being used for 7-zip, LZMA provides much better compression ratio than ordinary ZIP. In my case, it compressed my full backup with 50% compression ratio. (Approx, more than 20% saved compared to ZIP)
Also, LZMA is free and open source project.

I would also welcome this - as the algorithm used by 7zip is multi-core aware. Using this would speed up backup as the compression will/can use all CPUs available in the system. ZIP is single-threaded by design...
