 > IMHO ZSTD compression is not a backport candidate because it is a new
 feature. Moreover, substantial changes were introduced to both the gis and
 raster library, which are in no way a bugfix, disqualifying it for

 Emphasizing the backporting issue: backporting (in this case) is not
 trivial because it involves several low-level changes. If you want to use
 ZSTD compression, use trunk r71892. If you want more meaningful messages
 about why (de-)compression fails, use trunk r72042.

 Equivalent for any other new features in trunk: use trunk with the
 revision when this new feature was added.

 Feedback to new features helps to keep trunk robust (suitable for everyday
