Sorry, I forgot to provide a figure for only gzipping all the JS files
(without packing): It's 285,305 bytes.

This means indeed that with a gzipped connection there is only a small
benefit of packing. However, we know that many people cannot use gzip on
their connections, so the idea of packing the JS remains valid -- the
one doesn't hurt the other.

Kind regards,
