From a quick check with curl -D headers.txt -O http://
mybot.company.com/Builder1/builds/6/compile/0, it appears that the
data is sent back without gzip compression.

Since the logs can be quite large (> 1MB), this should be a huge win
for remote viewing (or even local on a busy network). For example,
in my test, the raw file is 1339516 bytes and gzipping the file after
downloading turns it into 60036 bytes.
1339516 --> 60036 = ~95% savings!
Since the log files are just files in the master's file system, it
seems like they could easily be compressed for transfer. If I had
*any* idea how the TwistedWeb stuff worked I'd offer to pitch in but
think I would waste a lot of time digging around whereas someone else
could probably fix it easily. Don't have too much time at the moment

P.S. It's also a little weird that it is using chunked encoding. Is
that on purpose?
