[JDEV] GZipping Jabber Messages

Hi, all. There's a good discussion going on over at the DotGNU Developer 
list about gzip'ing the XML that is transmitted around on the DotGNU 

Was wondering if it would be possible to incorporate the same thing for 
future versions of the Jabber server? Is it feasible, anyway? They are 
saying the trade-offs for extra resource consumption would not be bad at 
all if designed into the server properly, and would reduce bandwidth 
very dramatically (like by 80%, i think). This would be useful for 
high-volume servers with enough processing power, i think...
