Description:
------------
Using or not using mysql compression (or encryption) is a administrative decision, 
not decision that should be left for programmer as he usualy has no idea what is 
mysql configuration, what storage does it use and quite often this programmer just 
writes genuine aplications.
default for compression in mysql client (MYSQL_CLIENT_COMPRESS) should be settable 
in php.ini
http://pl2.php.net/manual/en/mysql.constants.php#mysql.client-flags

This would also to permanent connections but You made it into two diffrent 
commands so it would be more difficult.

I'm not sure I agree. For compression the developer should know what data to expect. Encryption should be configured alongside with host/user/password which usually happens in the application.
Having more places overriding each others makes it hard to figure out which settings arebeing used in the end.

I do not agree on the statement developers write genuie applications. Native interfaces are there to get most out of a specific interface/library from a specific application. As there is no security concern or severe performance impact, developer shall have full control. There's no need to differ from the logic of the underlying C library to ensure somewhat consistent behaviour among the same family of interfaces/libraries of a specific vendor.

For ext/mysql it is certainly out of question. No updates for that one.
