    Yes, but it performed slightly worse than xz, most likely because it uses the same compression algorithm.

    These are all about +/- 10%. Unless there's a significantly different and amazing general compression algorithm I haven't considered, I would imagine these results won't improve much, which is why I'm asking here to see if there's a way I can further optimize the data itself.
