We are proposing to increase the amount of RSS served by this host.
This will increase the load on said host.
Given that the audience is rubyists, there will be people accessing
this by means of Ruby.
The fact that Ruby doesn't yet support the compression feature out
of the box means that any load increase is maximized.

However, given that same audience, it might be that someone has had
an idea about how to solve this cleanly, so we can do something to
improve the situation.  That latter part is probably worth moving to
