ETags marked as weak may be the same across different content encodings #109

When an ETag is marked weak with "W/", it need not change across different content encodings. "Weak" means the entity is semantically equivalent but not bit-equivalent. But Redbot complains that it doesn't change with different content encodings.

Thanks for the report.

It's a good question. I've raised this for discussion in the HTTPbis WG - see

Based on that, I'll make changes here as necessary.

Isn't this the same as #113?
