Flash size vs. power tradeoff

Regarding power, to compress memory usage a lot more power is spent in
decoding.  Does this counter the lower power use when there is less

However, there is another trade-off.  In many embedded systems, most
code is for setup/teardown of some "steady-state" processing.  This
management code is run infrequently compared to the steady-state code.
From this perspective, encoding makes makes sense wrt. power
