In an earlier life I built a product that did the combination, using LZW. These days, I would like to see IPsec + IPcomp. Given intellectual property issues, Deflate is an attractive algorithm. It can be done in software, of course; I don't know if there are hardware-accelerated implementations of Deflate around.
