Subject RE: c-l filter and buffering of the entire response

I stand corrected... 

But there's no reason why the HTTP header cannot be compressed either.
This is especially critical when conserving bandwidth in an wireless
environment. 1200 byte headers are not uncommon and it a latency laden
environment every bit saved enhances the consumers experience. 

Is Apache ready for HTTP header compression?

The 'header' as refered to by the rfc 1144 is not the HTTP header but
IP/TCP header.

Or in other words Van Jacobson Compression and other ethernet, IP, TCP
level compression techniques have fundamentally nothing to do with the
socked based TCP stream level on which apache, or any internet protocol
-application- functions.
