Since the encryption and a few other features or panels I've come up
with depend on SimpleConfig, I want to get SimpleConfig out, work with
the feedback on it, and basically settle anything with SImpleConfig
before I publish encryption and anything else that depends on

it takes to compress should not be an issue so there's no need to make
it an option for the compiler.
