Unix Compression for a directory
Alternatively (although only for reading i seem to remember that there was a way to have Unix read GZ files uncompressing on the fly - ie without explicitly unzipping) unbeknownst to the application program?
Yes, but it involves more than one click (but also offers more versatility).
1) btrfs has transparent compression as a feature.
