How to utilize GZIP compression for DBs other than Notes

Do you know how to utilize the GZIP compression for databases other than iNotes? The HTTP task is obviously geared up to perform HTTP compression, but only for iNotes. We have dial-up users who are experiencing huge delays because of the size of the form. Changing the way the form works is not an option.
I have no experience in using GZIP compression. But I know someone who does. I suggest that you take a look at the template for domBulletin, one of the OpenNTF.org projects. I know that it has some GZIP features, and I do believe that the code is open for you to do some reverse engineering. This discussion template is highly recommended, by the way. It has some great technology, is admin-friendly and it even looks good.
