That's a great idea.

I've left gzip off typically as I've always been told that it IS a 
performance suck on a server -- could be fractional, but fractional * 100000 
== something big. ;)

But cached gzips is something completely different!  Cool!

That's not that big of a deal, a different page is cached for each
version of a query string, a compressed file wouldn't do any more
damage. Besides, storage space is much cheaper than bandwidth. I'll
look into working on a patch later.
