I query some pretty large views from our couch server, up to ~50M. These
queries are over the local network and they are quite slow. It's clearly
couch which is the bottleneck and not the network. I notice querying a
view twice in a row, the second time runs a lot faster, presumably
because the required data is in the disk cache.

So I'm not surprised by your result that gzipping doesn't seem to help.
