 For the record, apache is broken in its handling of this stuff.
 Specifically, if a browser does not send "Accept-Encoding: gzip" (or
 x-gzip), apache should respond:
 
 Content-Type: application/gzip
 
 At the moment it incorrectly responds:
 
 Content-Type: x/y  (the unzipped type, i.e. application/tar)
 Content-Encoding: gzip
