I can confirm, to my surprise, that compressed modules appear unable to 
accommodate entries above 64kb. I tested osis2mod's ability to generate 
compressed modules as well as mod2zmod's ability to compress RawText4 
modules, and neither work. I also tried out LZSS compression & variable 
compression granularities, so it's probably something upstream in zText, 
zVerse, or such.
