Yes... there is.

See the mod_gzip forum.
It's filled with people who have tried to use that aspect of PHP
and it simply doesn't work.

It has no 'smarts' whatsoever and more often than not you have 
to edit ALL of your scripts to have any chance of it working
correctly. Same is true for the Java back ends, for the most part.

I am not a PHP user myself. I don't know what the issues are.
I only know that PHP users but the hundreds are simply reporting
that it doesn't work for them and they are not willing to start 
rewriting scripts to make it work.
