nginx gzip_static not following gzip_types

Thanks for the quick reply.  It would be nice if there was a simple top
level directive added to make it follow the gzip_types rule.  The
default behavior of trying to compress images is pretty futile.  Even if
I had my bash script compress images to serve up, the extra
decompression time on the client would cause the page to be slower, and
bandwidth savings of probably less than 1% at expense of much, much more
than 1% increased client CPU.
