Adding mod_deflate to 1.4.xx
Since there are patches available it would be nice if this can be included in the main tree.
lots of fixes and improvements
limitations: see comments at top of mod_deflate.c
missing functionality: encode streaming response
(module currently requires response be collected before being sent)
potential functionality: addition of compressed file cache would
allow mod_deflate to fully supplant mod_compress in lighttpd 1.4.x
github: closes #67

- Status changed from New to Wontfix
You may of course use this patch, but we will not apply such core changes to 1.4.x as it is a stable release.
Apart from that i don't recommend using dynamic compression in a single threaded webserver - do it in your backends.
