In would sure like to see that feature in stable 1.2. It is optional and in a 
plugin, so quite unlikely to harm. And you could even require a configure 
flag for it.

If I could enable it per user, it would be perfect, but current is already 
nice to have. We have some customers who like to keep their mail data 
forever, and compressing on the fly would be much nicer than a nightly cron 
job. :)
