Well we already use the gzip compression that is built into Apache since that
works in tandem with the client too.
The point of minification is to remove comments, commented sections, optimize
the code by removing closing tags when not needed (</p> or <br/>), strip
unnecessary white space, etc.. there is more to it than just squeezing bits
which is what LZO or GZIP do. They work in conjunction with each other.
