I am all for SCSU as a charset (after my tools can view it properly), but
that was not the use there. OTOH there is gzip encoding in HTTP 1.1 :)
Seriously, SCSU is fine for some uses, but in this example, was definitely
not the best way to appreciate a reduction in file size.

By the 20% you mean an additional 20% by doing SCSU+gzip versus just gzip,
