To answer your 2nd question, I would have liked to see this documented as follows:
http://www.varnish-cache.org/docs/4.1/reference/varnish-counters.html <http://www.varnish-cache.org/docs/4.1/reference/varnish-counters.html> - in the n_gunzip section (i.e. includes the.. )
https://www.varnish-cache.org/docs/4.1/reference/vsl.html <https://www.varnish-cache.org/docs/4.1/reference/vsl.html> - in the Gzip tag section
https://varnish-cache.org/docs/4.1/phk/gzip.html <https://varnish-cache.org/docs/4.1/phk/gzip.html> - and here..
Thanks for your hard work on this cool product guys!
