Actually, what I'd really like is somebody to volunteer to write a new 
Catalyst::Plugin::Compress that handles all this crap once and allows multiple 
compression backends to be used. Sadly, the ::Compress::* plugins are owned by 
Sebastian Riedel so we have no way of getting patches fed back and as such 
they shoul be considered entirely unmaintained.
