Careful with this.
If the server machine has a slow CPU, and connectivity is fast, don't
bother... you can beat the hell out of the server doing the compression
(Did some benchmarking on an old rsync server running on a P3 500 with
512MB of RAM. It was faster to rsync without compression on anything
above a 1.0 MB/s link.)
