I know from experience that Apache httpd does report the compressed size.

Well, the first step is to get agreement that it's a problem :). After that's done, look to
see how difficult it is to fix.

I know the best way to get a problem fixed is to fix it yourself and submit the patch. A patch
that I did made it into 5.5.29. When I get a chance, I want to try making startup multi-threaded.
I'm running over 300 hosts per server and startup times are getting big. When I'm trying to
do that I'll look at the logging. Maybe it will be easy...
