convertpk3 is a command line utility to convert a wad file to pk3 file format.

USAGE:
convertpk3<wadfile> <pk3file> [compression method] [compression level]

wadfile: The wad which you want to convert
pk3file: The pk3 file name to save.

[compression method]: Which compression method to choose. (default: deflate)
The following are the valid compression methods:
deflate
lzf
store (No compression)

WARNING: If you going choose lzf, it is preferable to make a backup of your wad since zip archivers and wad editors cannot open it.

[compression level]: this is Deflate-only, it specifies the compression level to choose. (default: best)
The valid words are:
best (maximum compression)
fast (Faster compression)
stored (no compression)

Example:
converting a wad file to pk3 using deflate compression wth fast compression:
convertpk3 test.wad test.pk3 deflate fast

After taking an obscene amount of time to get this one properly tested, it's finally in releases. The main benefit here is the lzf compression, which as far as I know, wad2pk3 still cannot do.
