ESI & Gzip works in a pretty sneaky way in Varnish: We stitch together
gzip'ed files on the fly.
The advantage of this is very high speed delivery, since there is no
gzip'ing to be done at delivery time, the disadvantage is a lower
compression ration, because we need to flush & align the gzip streams
to make the stitching possible.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
