+/* PR 39727: we're screwing up our clients if we leave a strong ETag
+ * header while transforming content.  A minimal fix that makes us
+ * protocol-compliant is to make it a weak ETag.  Whether we can
+ * use this ourselves (e.g. in mod_cache) is a different issue.
+ *
+ * Henrik Nordstrom suggests instead appending ";gzip", commenting:
+ *   "This should allows for easy bidirectional mapping, simplifying most
+ *   conditionals as no transformation of the entity body is needed to find
+ *   the etag, and the simple format makes it easier to trace should any
+ *   misunderstandings occur."
+ *
+ * We might consider such a strategy in future if we implement support
+ * for such a scheme.
