Of course the feature doesn't have to support only HFS compression. There are 
apparently at least two other filesystems on the two other main platforms that 
support user-control over compression of individual files. It would probably make 
sense to expose that via a QFile option.

The question is more how feasible it is to integrate a compression engine of the 
type I outlined above (chunked zip) into QFile.
