A good feature to be added is the compression of data
between the client fbclient and the fbserver.

The compress algoritm can be simply zip or lzh.

I??ve been using Firebird over the VPN and Raw Internet
and a data compressed will be affordable.

I second this one, it should be quite simple to add zlib
compression to the client - server protocol and it will give
consistent performance benefits when moving large resultsets.

Using an strategy similiar to ZeBeDee or OpenSSH would be excellent.

This would be useful to backup remote location databases.

Encryption of network data is anyway planned for 3.0. Adding compression before encryption seems more than logical.

Implemented data compression in posix systems using zlib library. To port implementation to windows one should use windows build of that library,
