What are you looking for JD?  Faster replication or just less network used?

Looks like we have not had the ability to do compressed rpc before (We
almost did,  the original rpc compression attempt almost got committed to
trunk -- see HBASE-5355 and the referenced follow-on issue -- but was put
aside after the pb stuff went in).
