Remember Stacker?

The disk compression tool for MS-DOS ?

(this one is actually smarter, because when it *has* to
swap, the already compressed stuff gets swapped out, reducing I/O).

From what I have read about zram, I did not get the impression that its contents can be swapped out to disk.

Aren't you confusing with zswap (compressed cache associated to a regular swap device) ?
