Change default for compressing descriptors to true
Long ago, there was a bug in tor that broke compressed downloads provided via the DirPort (#11648 (moved)). The fix went into 0.2.5, so we can safely assume that all directory authorities have upgraded and don't have this bug anymore. Two separate checks have confirmed that fetching compressed descriptors works without issues. We should change the default to save everybody's bandwidth.
