However, descriptions of compressors in the raster indroduction for
trunk , are maybe confusing.
ZLIB's deflate is the default compression method for all raster maps.
... ZSTD is the recommended default compression method.
The same piece of text is used for `r.compress` .
I realised this before commenting in #3499. Yet, I thought "default" is ZLIB, and "recommended default" (like: "dear user,
it's best if you set ZSTD as the default") is ZSTD.
