http://p7zip.sourceforge.net/  for a linux compatible implementation.
and the default compression method of 7zip is LZMA.
"LZMA compression algorithm is very suitable for embedded
applications. LZMA is released under the terms of the GNU LGPL"

I agree that bzip2, gzip or no further compression would've been
better, but I don't think "proprietary" applies in this case.
