Description of problem:
I've noticed recently that the builtin deflate module is not working
properly. It is impossible to compress any ohter mime-type than text/html.
For example text/xml is not working

AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/*

Actual Results: Nothing, thats the point
Expected Results: the file should be transfered compressed. I already
I can reproduce this as well.
