[sc-dev] Use ZArchive for Object-readBinaryArchive, writeBinaryArchive

Hi All,

Given the limit on compilable text, I think there is a need for a usable binary archive format for large data sets.

Since ZArchive is 'safe', I propose moving it to the main library (if felix has no objections) and adjusting the Object-readBinaryArchive and writeBinaryArchive methods to use it. This might break some older code, but since there was already some discussion of removing the old unsafe binary archive support I thought this might be okay. The old binary methods could if desired be renamed for legacy support.

Alternatively we could add new readZArchive and writeZArchive methods.

Objections? Thoughts?
