This is strictly a client-side concern. I think the issue of having
a master set of config options on the server that can be overridden
on the client side is a completely separate issue that should be
solved in the same way for all options. Once that mechanism is in
place it can be used to specify compression as well as all other
options like auto-props, etc. So keep such things out of this feature.
