Bug#636796: use compression on first part of update transaction too
Gentlemen, it turns out the initial part of an apt-get update,
the part which sends
GET /debian/dists/unstable/InRelease HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Debian APT-HTTP/1.3 (0.8.15.5)
(as seen in tcpflow(1)), does not get a compressed result. Even though
it is only a 150 KB reply, but why not enable compression and just send
a third of that?
