Hmm, it just made it much more apparent.

Recently, nsa dismissed the elliptic curve crypto, however, even if I'm
not a mathematico-differencio-analyso-crypto god (but I compensate with
huge premonitions;), something is telling me it's because they can't
break it, compressed or not.

It was more a generic question, somewhat linked to cell phone data
monthly quota, than something vital.

I take good note of your explanation and about what Daniel said,
which is quite logical (doing app level compression.)

Thanks to the both of you.
