SIS attachments compressed

In case it is defined to use zlib compression, does SIS save attachments 

I have found this question replied in the past (2012) and the answer was 
NO. I ask again just to know if there have been changes or if it is in 
the roadmap to add compression.

I have been testing to migrate from maildir+zlib to mdbox+zlib+sis and 
the results, in terms of space used, and worst than using just 
mdbox+zlib (without SIS), and suppose the reason in the lack of 
compression in attachments.

Thanks in advance.
