For code and typical data, I'm not at all convinced that huffman
encoding (which is based on run-lengths) is the best method.
Actually Huffman encoding is not a run-length scheme.
Ah, I'm confusing it with ccitt (or whatever it is that fax-machines use), which uses a fixed Huffman tree to encode a set of run lengths of black/white pixels.

Either way, looking at more than one compression mechanism may have some value.
