Mode Z support (compression)

Is it planned to include ModeZ (compression) support in the FTP client? From what I was reading on the internet, it seems it was supported in older versions, and for some reason removed. This is extremely useful when uploading website files, as most files are ASCII or DLLs (C#) which compress greatly!

Checking back through forums, it looks like botg's position is:
"Mode Z is not needed because everything is already compressed."

The secondary position is:
"Developers are overworked, so only critical features will be included/maintained."

This pretty much means, if we want ModeZ to return, we would need a new champion to provide the patches, and maintain the patches.
