OUCH! I didn't intend a my-way-is-better stance at all.
My apologies if it seemed that way. I acknowlege that
recompression is on the todo list and it's a good thing
and I don't oppose it.

The original question had to do with the trade-offs between
CPU usage and disk size. My only point is that adequate CPU
is a good investment.
