Actually, TLS specifies (though its optional I believe, but openssl seems to 
support it) compression mechanisms, so some Jabber servers might already be 
able to use compressed connections without any real intervention...

But one could also think about Jabber to wbxml and then still compress it with 
some good algorithm..
