Any interest to implement RFC4978 (IMAP COMPRESS)?

RFC 4978 [1] defines an IMAP COMPRESS command to compress IMAP data 

Is there any interest to implement this extension in the cyrus imap server?

For low bandwith connections this could be useful but I don't know if 
that's a typical case nowadays. Together with the IMAP IDLE command it 
should be fine for mobile devices...
