Bull pucky. That's just more of the same. 

To belabor what should be, but clearly is not, obvious: not every LaTeX user
is either a C coder or is sufficient knowledgeable about algorithmics to do
what you so blithely posit.

Nor is every user of LaTeX drooling in anticipation of learning how to use
the latestest and greatest (de)compressors, especially knowing that it's just
so this week.

PS  The last phrase is a US joke in re being hypertrendoid.
