btw, did some thinking :), and I thought i might have the answer. Would it be safe to say (and i believe this is reasonable - I've been tracing down the code, but havent gotten to this bit yet :( ) that haproxy really doesnt do any reprocessing of the response body (only the headers), and so essentially, the gzipped content is "passed through" without modification (and the "Content-Encoding: gzip" header as well)? (I did see some mention of chunking in the docs, btw, but dont believe that haproxy does rechunking)
