Seems to spare about 30% of disk space on my NTFS partition:

lisp directory size: 71 827 784 bytes
actual lisp directory size on disk: 77 844 480 bytes

After uncompressing all .el.gz files :

lisp directory size: 112 124 612 bytes
actual lisp directory size on disk: 118 095 872 bytes

So there is definitely some benefit in compressing them.
