    You forgot:
    - .7z 7zip
    - .j JAR (www.arjsoftware.com)
    - .ice LHICE (some sort of "brother" to lharc aka lzh)
    - .ace ACE (www.winace.com)
    - UPX (yes!, you just need to put '#!/\n' at the front)
    - .cab MS CAB (use winace)
    - .bh BlackHole
    - .pak PKARC 2.51
    - .sqz SqueezeIt
    - "LZEXE"

    ftp://camelot.spsl.nsc.ru/pub/win32/arc/ - you'll find some there
    happy packing :)

    > 38064 linux-2.6.16.17.tar.rz

    - is this rzip with _maximum_ distance?
