CVS does tcp/ip compression? I know it uses zlib to compress the data
it sends, but that's different from actual tcp/ip level compression,
if I'm not mistaken.

I don't think we have any plans to do this, and am not sure what
advantages it would bring, considering that application-protocol-level
compression will pretty much take care of our compression needs.
