    How freearc could be even better

    Implement XXHash Because it passes smhasher on all 10 tests while crc32 passes only 9

    umac is up to 4x faster than xxhash, easily scaled to any length of 32*N bits, and have much stronger gurantees of its quality

    in tornado, difference between lzari and lzhuf compression ratios are about 0.5%, so that's not on priority list

    Compression rate is not the only advantage of FSE/ANS - as you don't need to build the trees, it is also much faster - look at zhuff and lzturbo at this benchmark:
