New instruction: Compress - to gzip other remotes

It will be very useful if one can compress files before sending them into cloud (especially if they were preliminary encrypted with "crypt" instruction).

Can you explain what you mean? You mean creating each file gzipped rather than crypted?

This instruction should compress each file and put compressed data in cloud instead of plain one.
(like a "crypto" instruction put encrypted data in)
Also it will be possible to make a chain like this: source_remote -> crypto -> compress -> dest_remote

Presently encrypted files are stored uncompressed, it's just a waste of space.

Encryption increases entropy of data. It is bad that 1st encryption and 2nd compression, you should do 1st compression and 2nd encryption.
