On second thought:
This might be probably even better to switch compression off by 
default.  The memory and CPU requirements of compression probably make 
it a bad choice for ~90% of users.

The available parameters will be:
  - deflate - RFC 3749 https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3749.txt
  - zlib - OpenSSL 0.9.7 compatibility
  - rle - OpenSSL 0.9.7 compatibility
The default will be to disable compression entirely.

What do you think?
