You should be able to do this already, out of the box, presuming that the
Erlang SSL library supports it.

Instead of using SSH, you could use the built-in SSL functionality. If
SSLv2 is disabled and both the client and server are compiled against zlib,
then OpenSSL should negociate compression, and if you select a cipher with
no encryption or authentication, you can avoid the crypto overhead.

Don't know enough about the Erlang ssl library to know how you'd go about
specifying what cipher it should use.
