If you're limited by CPU time rather than bandwidth, as you suggest,
then surely compression will make this worse rather than better... That
said, if you are using ssh, it might be worth looking at using a
different cipher than the default; something like "-c blowfish" might
give you a bit of a speed increase.

If it's worth hacking on well, it's worth hacking on for money.
