Permit the compression of (compressed) web pages in a format such as
gzip or zip, and transparently decode them when they arrive.

mscott: this seems to suggest that maybe we should have a pref for automagic 
conversion that triggers the content-conversion in the URILoader. See related 
bug 35956

We support "Content-Encoding: gzip" and "Content-Encoding: deflate" (zip) per
RFC 2616.  I think that is sufficient.  If you gzip a file and host it on
apache, it should be served up with the "Content-Encoding: gzip" header, and moz
should render it just fine.
