The sole reason for compressing is because the network connection is too 
slow.  Does that hold here?

It would be nice if the server allowed for both compressed and 
uncompressed transparently.  Also gzipping is rather slowish :)

In my world immutability deals with that you cannot CHANGE a current 
object, but you can create a new object based on an old one.  It gives a 
different mindset.
