The only things I found that LibCompress really makes shine are caching large databases, such as the guild bank, auction house, and other similar things.

I suppose if someone needed to cache all the heirlooms' data or the new artifact stuff, maybe. Or if you put all the standard stuff into one huge saved variable, compressing the SV could be useful. Specifically breaking down each thing into its own SV to avoid the OP's error is the method chosen by the DataStore author.

It would be interesting to find out if "Your computer does not have enough memory to load settings from the following AddOn. Please disable some AddOns." only applies to the 32 bit version of the game, or RAM-starved 64 bit installations. I was always mystified why Blizzard even has such an error, given modern computers having several gigabytes of RAM.
