Using data compression in VNC is a good idea, but it will not always
improve performance. If the performance is CPU bound rather than network
bound, it would actually slow things down. Also, compression may already
be performed by the network (for example, compressing modems).
However, for many people, especially those using VNC over the Net, it would
be very useful. But instead of using zlib, take a look at lzo, which is
faster and hence more suitable for real-time applications like VNC.
