Is the degree to which compression is effective can be predicted before you
do the save files, so that in essence there is like a report:

Here is all that you want to save:
The disk space it occupies on disk now;
The disk space it would take when compressed via whatever SAVF ZIP
combination;
But how much space is on each CD so unless you go multi-volume, this is how
much will fit before it fills up;
SO ... if you save file this much, that will go on one CD;
do same analysis on what comes next;
you may be wasting some CD space but the break point between one chunk & the
next will be preferably at a library, but if one whole library will not fit
on a CD, it will be between individual objects.

It probably makes sense to have a directory.
CD-1 contains following libraries & files, saved when.
CD-2 etc.
Place this directory on one of the CDs in the set.
Perhaps some place else convenient like on a report to go into a sleeve in a
pocket of the container holding this batch of CDs.
