afio is an archiver (available from third-party repos, not base) which
can compress yet still recover--it basically compresses each file
individually instead of compressing the entire archive, so the file
might be unrecoverable but the rest of the archive is still intact.
I use it for my tape backups (though your point of not knowing if
it'll fit on the tape is valid).
