IIRC, some months back you volunteered to do something about that.

I did take a look through the adapter code yesterday after posting this
and see that its using the Accept-Encoding header to decide what it can
do. But not altering it to tell the server what it wants.

I've asked joe if he is interested in fixing that bug in the adapter.
Which will be a lot more beneficial than the current patches as it would
avoid the extra squid.conf.

I know. A lot of asking for things and very little in the way of
contributions to help achieve it.

Thank you for testing joe's patches, even though I think the direction
is wrong it has been a big step forward.
