Our forked version of Gzip adds a patch to add the --rsyncable option, which creates an "rsync-friendly" archive. This option used by vzdump>/tt> utility

Here is the full description of this option:

"While compressing, synchronize the output occasionally based on the input. This reduces compression by about 1 percent most cases, but means that the <tt>rsync</tt> program can take advantage of similarities in the uncompressed input when syncronizing two files compressed with this flag. <tt>gunzip</tt> cannot tell the difference between a compressed file created with this option, and one created without it."
