I suppose finding a GNU based compression library wouldn't be that difficult or since it's pretty simple I could maybe even roll my own, but I'm not sure it's worth implementing. Directory listings get great compression but they really aren't very big and given that almost everything else is already compressed it's a lot of extra computing costs for no gain as I think it defaults to on for all transfers once enabled.

Do you find that servers that support mode-z are giving you good compression ratios on some types of files? Are they big files?
