>From my limited memory of looking at Apache, this should even be
possible to do in a module without touching the source.  There would
need to be some decisions made like should it 1) use the original
filename but set Content-Encoding (or whatever); or 2) send an HTTP
redirection to the .gz; or 3) uncompress it before sending?  It should
be configurable at run time, anyway.
