I have wondered now and again about a utility which would do a one-time
decompress with a requisite update of .conf, after the fashion of
mkfastmod (that is to say, as a distinct step of maintaining one's
modules), just to step past the "compressed module => slow performance"
problem entirely.

I understand the need for compressed support for the sake of reduced
download times as well as not being wasteful for folks on space-limited
platforms.  But for those of us using modern systems where monster discs
have become routine, disc space costs nothing, and the performance
trade-off is obvious.
