A client has presented an astonishing metric. They say they have a 1Gig
plaintext file which they can compress and PGP encrypt down to 80Mb! I
don't know what tool they are using. 

How is this possible? What compression algorithm could they be using?
Can I achieve this sort of compression using GPG?
