           Summary: Provide a threshold before transfer compression is
           Product: rsync

Where one side of the transfer is low powered (e.g. a home NAS) or where files
are small, the time taken to compress, transfer and decompress is often greater
than simply transferring uncompressed. One way round this is to have a
threshold (by default say 50Kb) below which compression is not attempted, a
command line switch taking a numerical arg like 100, 100K, 100M, 100G could
permit the user to tune this.
