Compress StarDict 'dict-data.dict' to ''

See original GitHub issue

Most readers should be able to read ‘.dz’ (compressed dictionaries) files nowadays.

I suggest we also compress the StarDict dict-data.dict files into Upon successful compression the .dict file can be removed. Saves much space.

I use dictzip for that. On Debian derivatives, it can usually be got, together with dictunzip and dictzcat, from the package repos, using:

sudo apt install dictzip

If invoked without other parameters, dictzip will remove the originating .dict file, so the following command should be enough:

dictzip dict-data.dict

(from within the data/XX folder)

If it’s only for the StarDict output, we could probably call pyglossary with the relevant option to get a file instead .dict.
