Thanks for the report and suggested patch, Devang.

Looking into this a bit more, I noticed that -z actually only is
used for the classic protocol, whereas when tunnelled through SSH
as is the case here, SSH already should take care of compression,
plus the amount of data here is small, so we can just simplify and
remove this option altogether.  I went ahead and committed the patch

As for your other questions, just keep changes coming, and I, or
others depending on the area, will be happy to review and commit
