Using gzip Transfer-Encoding: implies using chunked, because we want to shorten the response
and this means that the Content-Length definitely doesn't match the size of the HTTP response

gzip is a content-encoding, not a transfer-encoding.

That makes it easy to implement: content filters and protocol
filters work at different levels, so can coexist without trouble.
