I started to write a long response, then realized why I was having the whole 
compression/caching issue in the first place. I was caching compressed pages, 
which meant that browser headers were ignored, etc.


So now I need to implement mod_deflate. Since y'all have likely done this 
before, I'll ask here.

We have a typical proxy frontend/mod_perl backend setup. Which server should 
handle the compression? Seems like maybe the backend could, since we are caching 
pages, but don't know if there are accepted best practices on this.
