Awesome work Christian. Where can we find your code to test out?
If you don't have a place then I'll carve one out in our depots.

Makes sense that images are not compressed in zim file again, thanks for
In particular for windows mobile this increases the probability that with
reducing the cluster size

images than in android, but I haven't looked into this).
For android I still expect that it it will be better to use a native

made. As far as I know this is also the case for Mediawiki:Collection
