It does not do compression and Tim says:
However, I disagree with the “marginal, at best” part of that statement. Typically a JS file can be compressed upwards of 50% by just doing some simple JS compression techniques (you can also GZip the contents for an even bigger gain). For example, JQuery 1.2.1 uncompressed is 77Kb, and packed it is 26Kb and minified (Gzipped and packed) it is 14Kb.
UPDATE: Less than two days after writing this post Tim updated Bundle-Fu to use the PackR plugin if it is installed. Impressive. You can read about it here.
