[Bug-wget] Wget1 Gzip Compression

I was wondering if there is any interest here in adding gzip compression
support to wget1.

I recently came across a misconfigured web server which would gzip all
responses regardless of the accept-encoding HTTP request header.

This motivated me to spend some time working on adding on the fly gzip
decompression to wget1 and making some other compression-related
improvements to the codebase (before I discovered that wget2 is a work
in progress).

So before I spend more time working on it, I wanted to see if gzip
support is something that you would consider adding to wget1 if I
submitted a patch.
