You can verify for yourself that the compression benefits of larger strips are negligible past a strip size of 32K.

Well, it would be a bit of a hassle to verify it for myself at this time... but I take your word for it.

Good. :-)

I suspect that the benefits wane because of the nature of pattern-based compressors. New patterns must replace old patterns as the old patterns fall out of use.
