To be able to tell the MacPorts maintainers that Info
readers support compressed files, and what kind of
compressed files are supported.  So that they can
spare some gigs of spaces on my machine.

That's all.  Honestly, it was a simple suggestion and

I'm fine if the suggestion is dropped, for whatever reason
(not applicable, etc.).  I'm done here.
