There are no interop issues because it's a MAY feature that presently no one
implements. :-) Implementations are already supposed to handle both ZIP and
zlib prefs, so it shouldn't be an issue.
(Incidentally, here at PGP, we presently implement only ZIP, but decided to
add in both zlib and bz2 for a future major relase.)

I think so, but I wasn't on top of this for a while. I'm willing to help
push this now.
