Lightbulb Slax with SquashFS-4 new compression algorithm and layered compression ratios?


Hi I am working on a new Slax but with SquashFS-4 and as you know LZMA is not ready for this,
So what I'd like to do is to find some other compression algorithm that will support SquashFS-4.

And since we are going with some thing new then how about adding variables to set the compression ratio like layers as in 1-what ever is the highest we can do without being to slow or redundant.

So do any of you know of a good LZMA like compression algorithm for SquashFS-4 that might do this?
