[Bug-wget] [PATCH] support for gzipped transfer in wget-1.14

Hi all,

I found that GNU wget had no support for compressed file transfer.  I have
modified the code to:

- send "Accept-Encoding: gzip" header
- check if response is gzipped, and if so, decompress it at end of download
- not send the gzip header if a new option "-z" is specified
- disable all related logic if --without-gzip is specified during configure

This feature is especially useful for mirroring and/or recursive downloads.

I started off with a fork on github [0], but it was incomplete and not
really package-ready.

Please review and let me know your comments.  Google tells me this feature
has been discussed [1] on this list before, but it also seems to be much
requested? [2]
