Comment (by xing_litespeed):

 Just a note if/when this feature is on the fast track.

 When the backend returns a compressed format, it will most likely contain
 "chunked" transfer-encoding header and not contain a "length" header. If
 varnish decides to cache this, varnish should "clean-up" and remove the
 chunked header and calculate/insert length value. This would be the most
 correct way I think since any subsequent cache hits is sent in full and we
 already know the content-length.
