.zdia file extension for compressed dia files
Submitted by Alan Horkan
currently .dia files can be compressed and uncompressed (currently gzip is used for compression).
I propose a new .zdia extension.
The .zdia extension is to make it explicitly clear that a file is compressed.
For legacy reasons (and external programs outside our control) Dia could never assume based on .dia and would still need to accept .dia files that are gzipped might prefer.
this has been discussed quite thoroughly on the mailing list http://mail.gnome.org/archives/dia-list/2003-February/msg00196.html
i am entirely sure how best to go about adding this to the GUI but Lars agrees in principle that it would be useful.
