Use WWW::Mechanize by requesting gzip-compression from the webserver

The WWWMechanizeGZip module tries to fetch a URL by requesting gzip-compression from the webserver.

If the response contains a header with ‘Content-Encoding gzip’, it decompresses the response in order to get the original uncompressed content.

This module will help to reduce bandwith fetching webpages, if supported by the webeserver. If the webserver does not support gzip-compression, no decompression will be made.

This modules is a direct subclass of WWWMechanize and will therefore support any methods provided by WWWMechanize.
