I think this functionality belongs in the core (not as a 
sub-project or as a separate standalone module).  That's it.

Its omission up until this time has been for purely political 
reasons (as evidenced by the flame fest over the last few days).  
IMHO, there is no good technical reason to not have this 
concept as a core Apache module (be it mod_gz or mod_gzip).

In point of fact, I had no idea that people would react so
vehemently against the idea.  But, that's also because I'm
a clueless newbie - Roy probably would have warned me about
this quagmire if he was in town, oh, well...  =-)  I'll
probably never hear the end of it when he returns.  -- justin
