[REBOL] Compression in Rugby?

Hi Maarten and all,
looking at Rugby sources it seems to me that every transfer is
compressed by default? Could it be the reason for nearly 30% slowdown in
comparison to older Rugby releases? I think that compressing stubs code
by default is a win, as shown in example with GoRim - 46 vs 6 KB of
transferred code. Let's imagine I will send some binary data, e.g. mp3
file. Compression can consume too much time and can turn into being
uneffective. I think that it would be good to let it to user level, to
decide if compress or not. Compressing internal Rugby transfers
(get-rugby-service ...) is probably a good step though ...
