http purging multiple accept-encoding entries

I'm trying to put varnish in front of mediawiki, but there are a couple
things going wrong with the purging support built into mediawiki (which
supposedly supports varnish and squid).
1. Mediawiki was sending back an HTTP/1.0 PURGE command, which had no
Host: header, just the full url after the PURGE, so the hash function
wasn't matching with the normal HTTP/1.1 requests. I patched mediawiki
to fix this and send an HTTP/1.1 PURGE with a Host: header, not sure
what a better way to do this would be.
2. The PURGE does not have an Accept-encoding: on it, so it doesn't
match the cached object, which is almost always A-e: gzip. I hacked a
gzip header onto the PURGE, but what I really want is to purge all the
records associated with an URL. Is there a way to do this?
