Support for new NSZ

Feature description

Add the possibility to install .nsz files.

Benefits

Benefits would be, that you would be able to install them faster and saving bandwith. Also they dont take as much space as normal nsp files.

Additional information

[ In case you have any further ideas, mockups or information about the possible feature, place them here. ]

Xor is not adding nsz support because nsz is 100% piracy. The only difference with NSPs is that Homebrew uses it which is Xor's intention. Goldleaf is not a piracy tool, but a multi purpose tool as he will not add it.

^
NSZ format is a format made entirely with piracy aims, whereas NSP is an official format used for other stuff. Adding this would position Goldleaf as a piracy tool, which is not what I want.

As a note, this is one of the main reasons I'm not adding many easy-piracy-orienteed functions like XCI support or gdrive.

You should also drop NSP support and move more towards a file format that the homebrew devs would use that isn't NSP if you don't want your tool used for any sort of piracy. I'm surprised you still support NSPs considering your stance on piracy stuff.

@XorTroll Although I respect your piracy standpoint, I for one like the NSP format better than my cartridges for the sake of archiving and not having to carry game cards with me. Dumping, zipping and unzipping my games for (re) installation is quite the hassle.
Adopting the format would save some precious time in my use case. Dolphin had a similar format (GCZ?) for similar purposes which I really liked as well. The Wii had a similar format (https://wit.wiimm.de/info/iso-images.html#wdf) which never really came off because of the lacking adoption which was a shame really.
Still, I understand where you are coming from, just something I wanted to add.
