  If you're measuring the size of the zip file,
it isn't compressed. (unless someone changed
the implementation.) The reason for this is
that I found that rsync handles the uncompressed
zip much better. (zip compresses files individually
and there are a lot of very similar small files).
At the time, the archive was less than 1 GB, so
I prioritized network usage over disk space.
To change this you should be able to replace
the nocompression_sink with deflate_sink in html_writer.
