 That's mainly because it's not proven bullet proof. Only 3 weeks ago
the endian sensitive bug was fixed. I thought it was safer during the
first beta testing phase to leave it off by default.
 On the other hand it's stupid because the compression is less used and
therefore less tested. Given the fact that we often say : turn it on, it
would make more sense to turn it on by default. I'll do that if you think
it's a good idea.
