Changed in r1466918. One thing we might do in future is to
select default network data compression levels depending on
the --client-speed parameter.

If your server suffers from frequent stampedes (100 users trying
to checking out the latest release at the same time in a LAN),
that option can help you to reduce the server load a bit.

Thanks for the review!
