Bug Description

I would like support for zipped FB2 files like Filename.fb2.zip
Library with 25000 books in *.fb2 format have size approx 14GB.
This library in *.fb2.zip formats have size approx 5.7GB.
It's big difference.

Currently using: version 3.21.0 on Windows 10

Thanks!

calibre cannot support composite extensions (this is a limitation that
is very deep in calibre and cannot be changed). One could add support
for something like file.fb2z but for that to be useful it would need to
be recognized by something other than calibre.

Hi, Kovid!
Thanks for quick replay.
Zipped FB2 format have extensions *.fb2.zip or *.fbz
My favorite reader Alreader, Total reader and some others support *.fbz files.
Support for zipped FB2 files make your program more usable.
I want place my library to cloud, and library size is actual. Size 14 GB or 5.7 GB is big difference.

Thanks
