With some private replies I got a few leads. Most of which are not generic
wan accellerators but still appreciated. The two I considered:

TrafficSqueezer: still in alpha stage but performs both compression and flow

WANProxy: only does compression, but is slightly more "polished"

Thanks to all that replied.
