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.)
