on retrival you can use setenv to inject the Content-Encoding header: ::

setenv.add-response-header = ( "Content-Encoding" => "gzip")
mimetype.assign = ("" => "text/plain" )
}

Options =======

setenv.add-environment
adds a value to the process environment that is passed to the external applications

setenv.add-response-header
adds a header to the HTTP response sent to the client

setenv.add-request-header
adds a header to the HTTP request that was received from the client
