I've done some measurements as well now and can confirm this. With
master in default mode, I also see only tiny savings in time and
memory.

So I agree that we should remove the compressor code. I'm sad to see
it go, but it's one of these pieces that complicate things
considerably and that's only worth it if there's a clear gain coming
out of it.

Opinions?
