I guess that would be the appropriate thing to do.  And I guess what
DuckDuckGo is, strictly speaking, wrong, since url.el doesn't say that
it accepts gzip in the Accept-Encoding header.

But I think url.el should do that, because it'd make downloading stuff a
lot faster.  And, of course, unzip stuff on receipt.

Emacs doesn't happen to have gunzip built in, by any chance?  >"?
