-1 if these restrictions are hardcoded in the module like it was
before Sander's patch.  These problems should be handled by the
configuration of mod_deflate not by hardcoding rules.

When we added mod_deflate to the tree, we knew that we would have to
fine tune its configuration syntax to compensate for bad browsers.
Igor's listing is an invaluable first step.  -- justin
