RE: Problem with checksums...

 Apache has always done this kind of thing in the default config; GET a
 file with a .tar.gz extension and the response has Content-Encoding:
 x-gzip, Content-Type: application/x-tar.

 I think it's safest for neon to ignore anything other than the gzip
 content-coding, given that the only content-coding sent in the
 accept-encoding request header is gzip.
 
 Won't that break things if somebody has a .tar.gz file that isn't in
 subversion and a neon-based client tries to download it? Neon should be
 uncompressing this file,

*surprised* Should it? If that is in the spec I now know who to blame for IE
behaviour I so hate. When downloading a tarball, I want to save it
as is (any clue how to run pgp/md5sum over it if it is already
decompressed before it hits my disk?).
