P: n/a
For the sole purpose of speed, not security, do php scripts that have been
encoded with Zends Safeguard Suite run "faster" than non-encoded scripts ?

They're supposed to. And benchmarking results I've seen show that they do
(sorry, can't remember the URL, but it was an independent one). If you only
need the optimizing, then you're in luck; Zend have been nice enough to
release their optimizing module freely.

If it's bandwidth that's an issue, you might want to try gzip output
handling (http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.outcontrol.php )
