I have a proposal for adding compressed option roms.  Right now,
option roms are stored as "pciVVVV,DDDD.rom".  Instead, regular
uncompressed option roms could be stored as "rom/pciVVVV,DDDD" and
lzma compressed roms could be stored as "rom/pciVVVV,DDDD.lzma".

This solution is simple and wouldn't require any special cbfstool
