#401: Post Gzip after composing page with esi:includes
 Reporter:  xaos         |       Owner:  phk                              
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new                              
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  Varnish 2.1 release              
Component:  varnishd     |     Version:  2.0                              
 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:  esi gzip accept-encoding compress

 i have the following scenario:

 Master page with 2 esi:includes, nearly the same as described in

 To ease the scenario, I would like to have the following functionality:

 Request the backend WITHOUT accept-encoding headers (could be removed
 using vcl).

 Without the accept-encoding header, the request for the backend is not
 compressed, esi:includes could be parsed.

 After that, varnish should be able to gzip/deflate the created page in
 order to send a compressed version to the user.

 For now, my only possibility is to send a non-compressed output to the
 user which is suboptimal.
