it would be cool to have gzip support (for .js & .css files), i.e. if there is a .gz version of the file then paperboy would deliver it, else deliver the file like already implemented. Thanks

From my understanding, HTTP compression doesn't work quite that way; gzip is only used during transmission. Most web browsers do not understand .gz files, which are different from HTTP compression.
