Igor, sorry to tell you but httpd-2.0 has introduced mod_deflate as a 
replacement for mod_gzip, so you are going to have a lot of confused 
users when httpd 2.0 hits the streets. I suggest that you raise this 
issue on the httpd dev list before it's too late. May be it's too late 
already, since there was already a long discussion about why it should 
be called deflate and not gzip (check the archives).

The modules is located here:
