it causes severe slow downs on fast disks, and we still have other rsyncable
compressors available.

it was originally added based on wrong documentation that made the performance
impact look a lot smaller than it actually is.

    IMHO, we can always re-introduce it as configurable opt-in option if somebody
    really needs this combination.. and most things for which you might want
    rsyncable are better off just using PBS nowadays anyway.
