Is this actually true?  ISTR lots of problems with IE downloading
gzipped files and stripping the .gz extension -- but not actually
gunzipping them.  I don't think I'd call that doing the right
thing..  Maybe it works properly if the uncompressed document
is a displayable content-type, but not for others?

TE is 'transfer-encoding,' BTW.
