    Little time save during bundled exe startup


    not sure if I'm right here but when flag "Compress all files" is on I think also base file list is compressed while they are already compressed by UPX.
    I'm talking about all exe and dll: thinBasic.exe, thinBasicc.exe, thinCore.dll, thinVL.dll, ....
    All those files are already natively compressed so compressing them save just few bytes while slow down a bit startup operations when bundled exe is executed.

    So, in general, only user files should be compressed.
    Just an idea

    a ThinBasic base file are natively compressed with UPX, so whichever is the status of Compress all files they aren't compressed again.
    I think that the startup overloading while Compress all files is on it's due to the payload of loading the ZLIB library.
