Why not compress cygcheck output? (was RE: updatedb broken?)

My mailer (netscape) refuses to attach text files as anything but
inline.  Yes, I know I can use another mailer, but that's kind of a pain
and the few I've checked out also don't allow this to be controlled. 
While I'm sure there is a mailer that allows it, I can easily avoid this
issue by compressing the cygcheck output.

So, why is it important that the output not be compressed?  In fact, if
you asked for compressed output, it seems more likely that it would be
an attachment and not inlined.
