Description

It is good if POPFile supports HTTP compression with GZip.

I think we can use Compress::Zlib to do this:

http://search.cpan.org/~pmqs/IO-Compress-2.020/lib/Compress/Zlib.pm#Compress::Zlib::memGzip

We should check if the web browser supports HTTP compression. If we find 'Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate' header, we can use HTTP compression.

Gzip may be more useful for large multiuser installations of PF 2.0. For now most of POPFile's traffic is POP or IMAP and POPFile's interface is pretty lightweight, for most users the UI is not something they visit daily, and mostly access is done via localhost or a local network.

If we get to that point, how much would adding the libraries increases the size of the installer and slow down startup?
