I would like to keep the radio buttons. Maybe add the default button named
'auto-detect'. If we drop the buttons I guess many users would think that GZIP/BZip
support was dropped. And new users may think, that this feature doesn't even exist.
You know how lazy newbies are, just look at the dozens of install requests we get a
week. :-)

I think they don't waste that much space, even though I tend to keep the interface
as reduced as possible.

Anyways: autodetection will sure be nice :)
