I really don't like that.
1. I like to grep -r /usr/share/doc/packages easily
2. There are no much LICENCE files >4k. You wouldn't safe any
reasonable space.

zgrep

I mean grepping _easily_. When using xyzgrep you need to have more
knowledge about what kind of files you want to grep that. That's even
more bad if the user expects all these files uncompressed since
decades.

All this to safe maybe 50M on a large 12G Installation?

$ find /usr/share/doc/packages/ -type f -a -iname "change*" | xargs
du -s -B1 |sumit.sh

$ rpm -qa --qf="%{SIZE}\n" |sumit.sh
