COMPRESSION_NONE: No compression. This is the type that will be used if not specified.
COMPRESSION_GZIP: Compress using gzip.
1 to 9: This is gzip compression levels. 1 gives the best speed and worst compression, and 9 gives the best compression and worst speed.
COMPRESSION_GZIP_NONE: This is a synonym for gzip level 0. No compression.
COMPRESSION_GZIP_FASTEST: This is a synonym for gzip level 1.
COMPRESSION_GZIP_BEST: This is a synonym for gzip level 9.
COMPRESSION_GZIP_DEFAULT: This gives a good compromise between speed and compression for gzip, and is currently equivalent to 6 (this is in the zlib code). This is a synonym for COMPRESSION_GZIP.
