It's not. It's very non-free, actually.
If you want free archiving systems, your best bet is good old fashioned ZIP,
which allows you to cheaply extract any file from the archive. If you want
better compression and don't mind having to decompress everything at once, use
tar compressed with gz or bz2. gz is relatively cheap, bz2 gives excellent
compression but needs massive buffers to decompress.
