That's good. Is it run on adds? How is that compression ratio possible
unless you're actually doing a real compression (not just diff/delta) on it
in the first place, and if you are, then why would you want SetOutputFilter
on there anyway (since you'd risk bloating from double-compression, maybe,
or at the very least wasting cpu trying to compress it again)?

Indeed. Has anyone checked to see whether using mod_deflate is a lose from
recompressing in the first place, if it's that well compressed already?
