Hi Steven,

I agree with what you suggest for the implementation.

Yes, the overhead added by the encryption.  It is what people usually mention for the reason not to use it.
However, the TLS protocol allows to negotiate compression; in this case, it is very powerful!  LIST ACTIVE answers are for instance a lot faster.  The same for OVER answers.
