Add brotli compression package to the test as well.

What about the compressed/serialized file size?

The fst home page provides benchmarks for different methods that include file size.

Thanks David for a nice blog on my package fst. In reaction to the comment of MySchizoBuddy: adding brotli compression would be an option, especially for text compression. The build-in dictionary might help achieve higher compression ratio's at reasonable speeds, thanks for the suggestion.

I'm surprised to see data.table can write at 20x read - can someone confirm that is accurate?

Also, why aren't all the tests done on the same file (see table size in MB from original fst source website)?
