Minify plugin

Was thinking about building a minify plugin that would compress/gzip static resources.

Does one already exist? If not, would anyone be interested in using this? What kinds of things would you expect it to do?

What compression toolchain where you thinking about? Or are you thinking about doing it in an agnostic fashion?

Your answer makes me think that my idea applies more to a web or cssminify/jsminify type plugin and not ‘minify’.

I was thinking of google closure compiler and yuicompressor, along with some native compression tool (depending on the env) like gzip. Not sure about this one yet
