there's plenty of code duplication between lzip and lzlib

BTW - just curious - Antonio, why is this designed like that?

Lzip's code in much cleaner and slightly more efficient this way. It is also easier to issue informative messages in case something goes wrong.

Why isn't lzip just one (reference) program that uses lzlib
(statically)? Why has lzip its own "included version of lzlib" and you
have to maintain many things twice?

The (de)compression code is almost identical in lzip and lzlib, so it is not much of a problem to maintain it twice.
