      Description

      Hi,

      it would be nice if we were able to download individual files from a repository in a compressed format. Compression should be done on-the-fly (and probably only be enabled for small files). A way this could be implemented is by adding
      additional "LZMA" / "GZIP" / "BZIP2" buttons next to the "Raw" button
      on the file source view. These buttons should link to

      https://bitbucket.org/sschuberth/mingwgitdevenv/lzma/<sha1>/<filename>
      https://bitbucket.org/sschuberth/mingwgitdevenv/gzip/<sha1>/<filename>
      https://bitbucket.org/sschuberth/mingwgitdevenv/bzip2/<sha1>/<filename>

      respectively. Pressing such a button should compress that file
      on-the-fly on the server and send it to the web browser under a name
      like <filename>.lzma (or ".gzip" / ".bzip2" appended respectively).
      This would help to not host compressed representations of files
      separately in the download section. Note that as only single files get
      compressed in this use case they should not be wrapped into a TAR
      before compression.

      To me, especially LZMA on-the-file compression would be very useful.
