I also agree that real-time compression on the server side
is a misunderstanding. Compression slows down CPU, and response time...

But... I suggest, that if someone wants to have comperssed
files transfered over the web - then compress files first
and the uncompress on the fly - uncompressing (especially with lzop
is much faster that compressing, isn't it?
