I think you're wrong about where to compress :).

Different content we generate is compressed or not depending on where we
obtain it from. HTTP /may/ compress but for performance we /require/
compression. As for bzip2 - sure, but I didn't want to add a dependency
that I didn't know if Windows has trivially available, and we already
have a tried and tuned gzip implementation.
