'not sure if my views hold any ground here - but I believe we should not be
linking mod_gzip and mod_ssl here..

mod_ssl - it's one of the modules without which lots of users (especially
the e-commerce uses) would not even consider using Apache (forget the
performance). It's pretty much a REQUIRED thing in a webserver.. 

mod_gzip is totally different - it certainly helps in decreasing the
response time for the user - but it's definitely not a required thing..

I thought that we didn't follow the policy with certain modules.
AIUI, mod_ssl is exempt from this.  Why not mod_gz as well?  Or, as 
some have suggested - stick it in modules/experimental?  

I'd also like to point out that no one has said that the module 
didn't work as expected.  I tested it before I submitted it with
my +1.  If it doesn't work, it'd be fixed.

FWIW, I don't thinking creating a sub-project for one file makes 
a lot of sense.  -- justin
