Agreed, we use squashfs for our rootfilesystem to save space on everything. 
However, I could see this being a useful alternative, for those who need a 
writable rootfilesystem, can't/won't use unionfs.

I think the differentiation between a failed unzip and an uncompressed file 
could use some work though. Although, I guess if it fails, it fails and your 
system won't work as expected either way. A differentiating error code or 
message might help in debugging the problem though.
