> As discussed in [0], this issue tracks allowing to specify the compression level when building packages. The primary idea is to avoid compressing (compression level = {{NO_COMPRESSION}})  already compressed binaries, identified based on their MIME type.
> Setting the compression level is a tradeoff between the compression speed and the size of the compressed artefacts.
> Different use cases likely favour maximising either of the two.
> Therefor, it may make sense to allow configuring the compression levels per use case (not globally).
> A generic way to express this configuration would be:
> * a mapping from MIME type to compression level
> * the default level (for MIME type not matching any entry in the mapping)
