reducing gcode overhead ?

Hy guy`s

i recently noticed, that skeinforge is writing the Z and the F value into every line of the gcode.
as i think this will cause addition unnecessary calculation load the the electronics (especially when printing fast) it would be better when skeinforge only writes the values when they are needed to be different ?
is there maybe already a implementation of this within skeinforge i just didn`t found or is there really no optimization ?

I do not know if there is already a way to remove this redundancy but it would be trivial to write it as another plugin and insert it into the chain to try your idea out.

in the export plugin, you have to choose "small G-Code"
All redundant commands will be removed.
Also you can remove comments.
