When uploading images, gzip seems to be the bottleneck: upload seems to take nearly three times as long as download. Is it possible to replace the gzip compression with something faster? qzip ([url]http://www.quicklz.com/[/url]) looks particularly attractive: a GPL’ed compression tool that’s command-line compatible with gzip, but whose compression library is >5x as fast as gzip with a minor cost in compression ratio ([url]http://www.maximumcompression.com/data/summary_mf3.php[/url]). It is, of course, not file-compatible with gzip.
