What I'm thinking is that you may not know.  In some cases you can
upload files of multiple types - could be a document, could be an
image.  I would prefer the UA to be semi-intelligent and know better
than to try to compress a .zip, .gz, .gif, etc.  I'd see it as more of
an advisory, since it is optional anyway - "Compress this is you can,
and it makes sense."  Provide the best experience for the user.
