My idea is to compress the loaded data, in my test the ~270kB SSH data
was gzipped to ~17kB. That's a pretty high compression ratio.


'xz' would be even a bit more efficient (~13kB). But gzip is much easier
to use in Ruby, it is built-in:

That's a plus.

At read:

require "zlib"
compressed = Zlib::Deflate.deflate(read_data)

[Run the installation]

At write:

write_data = Zlib::Inflate.inflate(compressed)

Imo what do you think about it?

It sounds good. But it will depend in how much memory is used to make the
compression (as you said in a status call IIRC).
