[Newbies] Compressing large arrays

today I learned that I can use #byte64Encoded to compress ByteArrays (and #mimeDecodeToBytes: to uncompress it again).
However, I wonder whether there is an option to do the same for arrays that elements' are not limited to bytes. Concretely, I have got an array of integers in range (-20601 to: 20935), so I can map it to 6 or 8 bytes per value. Does Squeak support any way to compress such an array to a stream?
