[Seaside] Kom/Seaside/Apache, gzip?

Hi all,

Most of the content that we serve up using Apache is gziped either  
using Apache's mod_deflate ( we used mod_gzip with apache 1.3) or  
using PHP's output buffering capabilities. My users have become  
accustom to the quick download times of our web biased applications.

Gziping content makes a huge difference with our applications. Does  
Kom support this? If it does not appear that it would be a huge  
undertaking. Any pointers on where to begin ?

Does anyone know if Apache can act a a gzip proxy ? Gziping non-ziped  
content served from seaside. Has any one done this? Any examples?

The only idea I had was to use mod_php/mod_perl to handle the  
proxying and gziping from a seaside image. I am not sure what the  
performance hit would be but it just feels hackish to me. In my mind  
the best solution would be Gzip support in Kom.

Any ideas?
