For my own reference, I'd like to know exactly how adding mod_gz in 
the tree will impact the few folks "working" on stabilizing the 
server (other than as a distraction on this list - which this should
have been a easy yes vote last weekend).  It's a module.  No one has 
to enable it if they don't want to.  It has zero impact on the rest 
of the server (due to our architecture).  It implements something 
outlined in RFC 2616 that almost all browsers support today.  

Adding mod_gz will cause "instability" seems to be a common 
thread among the vetoers here.  Please enlighten me as to how this 
is the case.  -- justin
