Are the WU\'s compressed when they have finished been crunched in order to send them back to the server??

Any info gratefully accepted

They are saved as png\'s and then gzipped.

However, the gzip doesn\'t do much afaik as the png format is pretty far compressed already.

Yes, PNGs are compressed within using the deflate algorithm.
