I see this -avz incantation mentioned everytime when rsync is
involved. But, is the -z part (compression) really necessary knowing
that we're dealing with an already compressed tree? Doesn't it put
additional strain on the rsync server without any benefit in this

Or I might be too ignorant and not understand some internals well, but
then... I would like to know the reason. :)
