Remove "x-gzip" from Requests' "Accept-Encoding" header #469

Having "x-gzip" as first encoding in "Accept-Encoding" header seems to cause encoding issues with some (IIS?) web servers (response not compressed, valid but not compressed)

"x-gzip" is not included in "Accept-Encoding" headers sent by latest Chrome or Firefox releases

After discussing with @dangra and @pablohoffman (81fbe8c#commitcomment-4617865) the consensus is to remove it in requests still accepting it in responses

Moving "x-gzip" to the end of the accepted encoding list also works (with the server exhibiting the issue)
