[issue1508475] transparent gzip compression in urllib

Tom Pinckney <thomaspinckney3 [at] gmail> added the comment:

What if this gzip decompression was optional and controlled via a flag or handler instead of making it automagic?

It's not entirely trivial to implement so it is nice to have the option of this happening automatically if one wishes.

Then, the caller would be aware that Content-length / Accept-encoding / Content-encoding etc have been modified iff they requested gzip decompression.

Enabled by default with a knob to turn it off sounds good. Maybe the original headers could be preserved in some object.
