True. And I think it's reprehensible for Oracle Corp to take this functionality away when moving from exp to dp, and then turn around and charge extra for it in the next version. But I digress...

One alternative may be to use a filesystem's internal compression, perhaps JFS or ZFS. For example, creating a new volume specifically for datapump exports, initializing it with a compression-enabled filessystem, and using that to store datapump exports.

I haven't tried this. It's just a thought...
