Ugh. I prefer transfers to remain as dumb as possible, as usually somebody switches to compressed files instead of text files somewhere down the road. Also, finding out whether two data deliveries are the same becomes really hard if their checksums and filesizes don't match at either end.

So I'm firmly in the latter camp of doing the conversion in Perl instead of doing the conversion at transfer time.
