    1. If the content-coding is one of the content-codings listed in
    the Accept-Encoding field, then it is acceptable, unless it is
    accompanied by a qvalue of 0. (As defined in section 3.9, a
    qvalue of 0 means "not acceptable.")

    wget --header='Accept-Encoding: gzip;q=0' --save-headers http://localhost:8088/ returns a gzip'ed version of the page. The q value of 0 should have disabled gzip as a valid content encoding.

    That's true that LSWS does not check the q value.
    Is it possible to remove "gzip" completely from the header?
    It will save some effort on both side. ;)
