My tests have shown that if you can reduce the size of the data, the
time saved in network traffic for moving smaller objects is well worth
the tiny amount of cpu to compress and uncompress the data. We deal
with about 300k chunks of HTML. I thought that maybe I could speed it
up if I skipped compressions. I found the opposite to be true. Not
sure about the gz libraries in Java. But in PHP they are smoking fast.
It's good to be cheap =)
