zlib isn’t fast enough for usage like this. It’s better to use something like 
Snappy, which was designed to be very fast, at the expense of less compression. 
It works very well for database content.

If I were going to use it, I’d implement a pair of SQL functions to 
compress/uncompress blobs, then wrap calls to those around the SQL statements 
that read and write the column I wanted to compress.

(Of course this is total overkill for storing a couple of integers as discussed
