About compression

Hi Jean-Yves,

No, not a chance. Compression is really better left for upper layers.
I'm not sure I see the value in adding at layer 3. This is an
especially contentious issue because of the history of complex and
catastrophic interactions between compression and encryption (such as
the CRIME and BREACH attacks against TLS).

What workload are you currently experiencing that would measurably
benefit from having layer 3 compression?
