Neither mod_perl nor mod_php should have to do gzip, as it's a transfer
encoding - it should be done transparently.

The job of making mod_gzip efficient (AKA not gzipping every file on
every request) is the job of mod_cache with cache_storage.c
optimisation. mod_gzip should be applied to all output where possible,
not just static files.
