This question just popped into my brain, and I was wondering if anyone knew
the answer off of the top of their head (before I go an explore the API
and/or P4 wire protocol).
When a file is store compressed on the server (say a largish binary file),
is it uncompressed before being sent over the wire? What if the client is
using the compress setting?
I was just curious if a file is already compressed, it would make sense to
send it over the wire compressed and have the client uncompress it.
As I said, just a random thought while doing a sync, and watching it pause
on a fairly large binary file.
