content-type header charset info problem

Yes, I'd expect the charset definition in content type header even if
the content is gzipped.

Reading the RFC2616, there is no mutually excludent rule that prohibits
the charset to be declared after gzip encoding.

Unfortunately, I'm using nginx 1.0.14 and cannot apply patches to it
without having it gone through extensive testing and benchmarks again,
we're changing a very important section of our infrastructure and
changes like these are always a hard work.

I haven't had the time to check if this patch is applied to the trunk,
or the latest stable version of nginx. If the charset module is already
with that patch on 1.2 branch then it will be much easier to start the
1.2.X branch testing and benchmarking by our capacity planning and
testing team to homologate that version for our infrastructure. 

Thank you.
