HttpCompressionModule under stress

I just got this mail from someone who’s using my HttpCompressionModule. 
He took it upon himself to do some performance testing on the module and here are
the results:

Microsoft’s free “Web Application Stress” tool.

WAS ran on a server with a T-3 Internet connection to the test server.

WAS Settings:
All default except:
Stress Level (threads) 60
2 sockets per thread
Test Run Time: 3 mins

Without HttpCompressionModule

Number of hits:              
Requests per Second:          133.37
TTLB (Time to Last byte) Avg: 639.31
