      Description

      mod_deflate buffers entire responses, which blocks any streamy
      responses coming from mod_dav_svn.
      
      This is technically an Apache bug, but placing into svn's issuetracker
      as a constant reminder to kick the apache team into fixing it.  It
      creates huge scalability problems for Subversion.
      
      (In svn 0.26 and later, neon does *not* accept-gzip encodings by
      default.  That's our temporary workaround.)
