It should be straightforward to set up an experiment to figure out how much
compression can be expected.  Use tcpdump, capture a session containing
some traffic of interest, then run say gzip -9 over the capture file and
observe the compression ratio.  Or for a more live analysis, Linux PPP
supports two different compression options, so set up a rate limited link
between two instances.
