#9400: Auto Gzip Decompress on Google Cloud
    Reporter:  bchapman        |      Owner:  dkocher
        Type:  enhancement     |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal          |  Milestone:
   Component:  google-storage  |    Version:  4.8.3
    Severity:  normal          |   Keywords:  gzip, google cloud
Architecture:                  |   Platform:
 When downloading gzip compressed files via cybderduck, they don't get
 automatically uncompressed.
 It would be supercool if they did.

 When storing files in Google Cloud, you can optionally store them
 compressed as gzip.
 This can be done using gsutil with the -z or -Z flags.
 There's no modification to the filename to signify this change...no ".gz"
 Viewing the metadata of a file via Cyberduck I can see a few headers that
 could be used to identify and uncompress relevant files.
 They have headers such as:
 stored-content-encoding: gzip
 Content-encoding: gzip

 So if cyberduck sees these headers, it could potentially do an automatic

 Potentially this could be expanded further to support compression on
 upload as well.
