WebDeploy: Make use of zlib and use compression!!

One by one file copying is a dealbreaker. Please opt for zlib to compress the whole package, push the tarball, untar it on target and post the result back at once. We don't need one by one file transfer status.

At least provide an option for it, if people are dumb enough to realize what they don't need! It takes us MINUTES to publish the dam thing on our staging from other country.

zlib (http://zlib.net/) is used by the whole non-Microsoft world. Node and many other platforms and open software make use of it. It compiles fine on Windows XP - 10, store and phone.

    Thank you for pointing this out, we will review. WebDeploy development is currently very limited so we may not be able to address right away.
