Neon could be modified to send compressed request bodies. But, that's more
difficult because there is no 'handshake' to ensure that the server can handle
compressed request bodies. With responses, the client sends the
'Accept-Encoding: gzip' in the request, so there is a 'handshake' to ensure
that both sides can support deflate. So, compressing request bodies isn't a
realistic expectation to support with HTTP.

Using ra_svn with ssh tunneling with compression enabled would do both ways as
it blindly does compression on all data.
