Congeniality lesson noted, but not in the way you probably intended.

Having trouble reconciling these statements. I sympathize with the
position that the pros outweigh the cons [of deflate in the default
conf], but not that there aren't any cons.  I think there's a lot of
prerequisite work to be done before enabling this on the type of
unsuspecting users who wouldn't have ever thought about it in the
first place (the beneficiaries).

I still strongly disagree that lack of deflate in the "default build"
or default conf is a significant gate.

I see the thread differently, notably with respect to where it started
and what you quoted.  But I appreciate your opinion nonetheless.
