Mirroring dir via apache introduces unrecognized x-compress header

Jan 15 16:18:42.480 [warn] parse_http_response(): Unrecognized content encoding: 'x-compress'
Jan 15 16:18:42.480 [warn] router_get_hash_impl(): couldn't find "signed-directory"
Jan 15 16:18:42.480 [warn] router_parse_routerlist_from_directory(): Unable to compute digest of directory

Jan 15 16:18:42.480 [warn] connection_dir_client_reached_eof(): I failed to parse the directory I fetched from Ignoring.

Is this as simple as teaching Tor about x-compress?

Is there a workaround whereby we can get people to rig their apaches
to use x-deflate or x-gzip (that is, let the headers through from the
proxied connection) despite apache's default?

This isn't a Tor problem, it's an Apache problem: Apache sees the .z url that we are using to clue Tor that we want a deflated file, and deduces that the file is clearly compressed with LZW, which libz doesn't handle.

The solution is to make Tor better able to handle nonsensical content-encoding headers.
