My vote is for default on. As compression usually will shrink the data
to about
half, the CPU spent on compression will partly be earned back by having to
encrypt only half of the data. In normal situations you would always want
to use compression to lessen the burden on the network, and to avoid having
to compress files or data separately.

Just my view.
