[Gdal-dev] The perfect raster format - which is it?

OK I know its a loaded question, but which format and format options
are the 'best' in terms of:
- produce the most compact file size
- supports byte output
- support nodata
- is writeable by gdal
- and (for special bonus points) is readable by ArcView 3.x and ArcMap >=8
Previously we've been using HFA but lack of nodata support is an issue
and it does not seem to work well under both ArcMap and ArcGIS.
Any tips on the subject will be greatly appreciated.
