Hi Mike,

Zstandard has provoked a lively discussion on IETF lists.  Noteworthy
comments included Harald Alvestrand objecting strongly to the use of
"standard" in the name (he's gotten lots of support for this comment)
and several cryptographers questioning why it's worthwhile, given that
it uses existing crypto primitives and it currently lacks good treatment
of the security considerations.

Cheers,
- Ira
