format status notes
lzf fully implemented
lz4 in LZ4Block lz4_jblock implements format compatible with https://github.com/lz4/lz4-java/blob/master/src/java/net/jpountz/lz4/LZ4BlockInputStream.java this format does not seem to be supported by any other libraries, however there are unfortunately compressed files using it around
