I don't understand.  The nightly compressed JS uses jsbuild.  That
weighs in at 1,1 MB.  So do you mean that this 1,1 MB compressed file
gets shrunk down to 167 K using mod_deflate ?

Playing around with the 1,1 MB file, I tried compressing it using the
default Ubuntu "zipper" and I got :

- 206 K in .7z format
- 260 K in .zip format

So mod_deflate uses a more aggressive compression scheme I guess.
