A server-side solution is difficult. Suppose the client has some
uncompressed content U which it compresses to C and sends to the server.
The server can uncompress C to get U but unless the compression scheme
has a canonical compressed form, with no other forms allowed, the server
cannot avoid storing C because there is no guarantee that C can be
reconstructed from U.
