Normally I'd agree with you, but the availability is still surprisingly poor;
for example most of my rsync use is onto a Synology NAS, but all it seems to
support is ext4 with no real ability to customise it (trying to change mount
options almost always causes it to assume the disk(s) have gone bad =/).
Granted that's poor design on Synology's part, but I've worked with plenty of
other limited environments where compression would have been nice.

Since rsync already has compression built-in when transferring data, it seems
like a good idea to take fuller advantage of it.
