Actually, it's in the commit. It saves a couple of KiB since we can switch to
xz along the way too. As for iperf 3.1.5 this is:

550862 Bytes for iperf-3.1.5.tar.gz


400468 Bytes for iperf-3.1.5-a46d5aec9726e196e86ab192c3f77dea6a3beb8e.tar.xz

That's around 27% savings of bandwidth. Because once it's uploaded
onto the mirror
the download methods will pick it from there - instead of the listed address.

Anyway, if you have your own idea of how to do it: Then just make a
patch as well.
