> Apache Tomcat 8.0 will automatically send the pre-gzipped version of a resource if it
finds a .gz version of the file in the WAR.  This is beneficial since: 1) it saves on CPU
cycles; 2) it can leverage the operating system to send the file 'directly' from the disk
to the network socket with as little handling as possible in CPU/RAM.  xref the 'Note' on
the 'compression' attribute documented at https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.0-doc/config/http.html
> So, I would like MWAR to do generate these pre-gzipped resources for me, at build time.
 Obviously, it need only do so for certain static assets: an initial 'by convention' would
probably:
>   - include *.html, *.jpg, *.png, *.gif, *.css files under the WAR resource root or subdirs
>   - but exclude those found under /WEB-INF/
>   - except if they were specifically found under /WEB-INF/resources/
