[Q] content encoding, cte?


I fetched a gzip'd file and got a format application/zip, which is cool.
But both content encoding and content transfer encoding were unset - is
this what I should have been expecting?

I was expecting one or the other to be 'gzip' or some such. Is this

Or are these things things you set rather than get?
