I don’t use the feature; but, if I am going to, in a situation where I know I 
won’t run out of storage space, I’d want to save on time and be quick and 
default to the one step to tar and back. I’d only want to consider the two step 
to tar.gz and back at 80% of storage consumed or I intend to send a sizeable 
copy across the net to save time.
