FYI - I haven't dug into the theory, but I'd presumed a possible race
and certainly suboptimal behavior if you go with OpenSSL's 'zlib-dynamic'
win32 implementation (actually any zlib-dynamic for a server application,
no matter which platform).  The optimal behavior is to enable-zlib to
openssl so it's simply present upon first-use of compressed TLS streams.
This is how I've configured openssl-0.9.8.

If you were to link static to both openssl and mod_deflate on win32, of
course that also works (and is also a redundancy ;-)
