Hash Zip is a compression algorithm that trades CPU time for compression ratio (emphasis on a lot of CPU time) using a hash and a few other interesting bits of data. Currently, sha1 is the hash algorithm.

    Thanks for the feedback
    Thanks to everyone for their well thought input regarding number theory and the reasons why my algorithm doesn't work for all possible input values. While I conced that it is a true statement, I'm wanting to determine where my algorithm fails (specifically which input values), so I can make it work for the general case, and perhaps expand a data structure or two in the specific cases where it does break down.
