Add Stream Compression to XMPP

Reported by: phannent Owned by: deryni
Milestone: Component: XMPP
Version: 2.10.7 Keywords:
Cc: devurandom, mcepl

Description

XMPP supports compressions via these XEP's:

http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0138.html zlib compression http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0170.html Order of events http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0229.html lzw compression

It would be a good idea to add this support to Pidgin for these XEP's so that actual data transfer is smaller and faster.

It is also worth noting that there is a better compression method for XML called EXI: http://www.w3.org/XML/EXI/

This should also be made into an XEP and added to libpurple.

There is now an XEP for the EXI compression method:
