But if you must do it, please use only one extension. And make it ldrz. (No datz, no mpdz, etc.) The fact that LDraw files already use four extensions for the exact same content is crazy.

Didn't even think about that, I was just thinking to add an extra something to the extension, so you could easily extract the original name what ever it might be.

Main reason for this is the fact other files will still reference to the compressed file using it's 'normal' file-name, in that way you can change compression (on/off) for any file without breaking tons of dependencies. Downside is an extra locate operation (also testing for the z version, if the normal one is not found in a search location).
