Description (last modified by davidsarah)

It will be handy if the WAPI could compress its JSON output on the fly. This is especially useful for a Tahoe client running on a mobile phone.

The following command returns uncompressed JSON.

curl -H "Accept-Encoding: compress, gzip" http://testgrid.allmydata.org:3567/uri/URI%3ADIR2%3ABLAH/?t=json

For compression of file data rather than JSON metadata, see #994.
