 still think it wont hurt to go with the default compression rate though. At 
least for now; we don't have to change makepkg to pass a compression rate.

And if we add the time for uploading the data most of us will still win. And I 
just assume that for most packages compression time doesn't matter. The 
packages are either small, or if they are big you need a long time to compile 
or to upload.

For users -6 is clearly the best. And we have hopefully more users than 
packagers ;-)
