Assuming this affects scp as well (I think so) then I'll just note
that on LANs this is not necessarily a win.  I tested with/without
compression extensively over LANs when writing the original P2V tool
and compression of random disk images would slow things down a lot.

YMMV and the CPU/IO balance might have changed over the last two
years, but you should test it at least, and consider only enabling
this option for distant hosts.
