I’m interested more on the absolute to relative URL link conversion than compression. I need this feature because I want to offer wp-admin part from a different host, for example https://admin.sample.com so that this admin host can be secured by enterprise SiteMinder SSO. This leaves public facing site http://sample.com untouched by SiteMinder, which is not a highly stable product. Providing a separate host for wp-admin can be easily achieved through Apache mod_rewrite and r-proxy, but without relative URL links, every subsequent request from wp-admin results in a client-side redirect, and hence more performance penalty to site admins.
It would be even better if you can offer an option to enable/disable URL conversion and HTML compression separately.
I’ll keep it in mind for a future version when an admin panel is made available.
In the meantime, if you upgrade to v0.5.4.2, open up wp-html-compression.php and comment out lines 35, 36, 41–46. That will enable the plugin for the admin, but it will also minify the HTML, thereby slowing down each page load by a small fraction of a second.
