I see your discussion from 2003, and was hoping you could consider compression 
support again. If your decision was final please just close this bug, and I'll 
stop bugging you. :)

Several default parameters are set for a httpmethod, such as e.g user-agent, 
which arguably could be set by the addRequestHeader() method.  I would really 
like to be able to enable compression through a parameter too.

My patch solves this, and should also be backward compatible. Compression can 
still be handled manually, but if the compression parameter is used, 
compression is handled automagically.

I agree that compression should not be used automatically, but it would be nice 
to explicitly enable it. I did expect HTTPClient to support compression, and 
had to Google a lot to discover that it actually was not supported.

I hope you'll consider compression support again, and that my patch is helpful 
if you decide to change things.
