      Description

      I can see that regular web requests are being compressed which is awesome! However WS requests do not seem to be, according to Firebug:

      e.g. http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/release/8e061dc4-790e-4587-ba53-011e7852f88d?inc=release-groups+media+recordings+puids+artist-credits+labels+isrcs+artist-rels+release-rels+url-rels+recording-rels+work-rels+recording-level-rels+work-level-rels is 1.2MB

      Firebug gives me the below (no "Content-Encoding gzip")

      Date	Thu, 04 Aug 2011 16:47:10 GMT
      Content-Type	application/xml; charset=utf-8
      Connection	keep-alive
      Keep-Alive	timeout=20
      Server	nginx/0.7.65
      Content-Length	1253068
      

      with request (accepting gzip, deflate)

      This is important for the links like above; MB's bandwidth to Singapore appears to be about 30-40kB/s so it would probably improve the speed of that request significantly.
