VCL, RTL, it's all the same thing, components delivered as standard with
Delphi. ICS is not VCL/RTL free, it uses classes with strings lists,
streams, etc. ZLIB is just another stream format.
It was never necessary to put compression into the HttpProt component in
the first place. I wrote an application that handles compressed pages
using ZLIB several years ago - the stream is uncompressed in the
RequestDone event using half a dozen lines of code (that I've posted to
this mailing list in the past).
If the new component needs external code adding to actually decompress a
page, we are effectively no further forward than several years ago, and
I'd just ignore any new attempt to add compression and use my old code,
provide the new component is fully backward compatible and does not
break my application.
