I can do experiments, but the data set I have only has "gzip, deflate" and
no other variations, so the results will be pretty meaningless.
So I really need a better data set.

Note that if we end up doing this, I'm not opposed to picking something
that is not the most frequent in order to encourage convergence and less
stylistic variations.  ie if we don't want deflate anymore, let's pick
"gzip" even if "gzip, deflate" is more frequent.
