Compression in the engine.

I have a question. Is zlib being actively worked on being replaced by ZSTD or LZ4 for the 0.5.0 release? It is in the possible features of the project: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/projects.

I don't know much about it but from comparisons (seen on this page https://github.com/facebook/zstd) zstd seems a lot better than zlib. Do any devs know how much this would help the performance of servers? I'm just hoping something can be done before the 0.5.0 release.

Here's a nice graph: Image
