And there is the rub - not many clients do the compression. Which is
dumb. OSM does the server side stuff but the apache jakarta xmlrpc
I spent some time a while ago trying to shoehorn another similarly
derived library in, which *did* do gzip but it didn't work for some
strange reason I've forgotten.
