I could be very wrong, but here's how I understand the big picture:

  * on the client, neon is either compiled with or without zlib
    support (-lz)

  * client makes an HTTP request to the server, and in the request
    headers indicates that it *is* able to understand deflated data.

  * if the server has the deflate output-filter installed, and the
    client can deal with it, the server compresses the HTTP response

  * if you're debugging the network trace, you need prevent this
    compression. the best way to do this is to tell neon to *stop*
    telling the server it can understand deflated data, by setting
    'http-compression = no' in your ~/.subversion/servers file.

I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong here...
