in reply to RFC: Compress::LZW

Before I upload this, I'm going to add a very obvious note that this isn't compatible with .Z files, nor is it currently stabilized in any way.

Also, I'm going to move this module to an OO interface (with some exported functions for the hardcore). This will provide a more plausible method for adaptive blocking, instead of a program having to feed _all_ of its data at once, we can "stream", just like compress does. OO will also provide for XS (well, more easily:) in the future. Thanks for all the input so far everyone!

    Might be also worth noting that it's only the US patent that has expired - IIRC, the international patent (e.g., the one affecting us elsewhere in the world ;) is in effect for another year yet. While it's unlikely to have any real legal implications, it should be noted.
