|Summary||0002670: Support Brotli compression|
|Description||Brotli compression, which is very new, may present roughly 20% improvement over gzip.|
It isn't yet supported by PHP or Apache (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brotli), but when it is, we should support it as an automated upgrade from gzip compression for those users that can run it (Firefox, Chrome - but we look at the Accept-Encoding header). I don't think it needs to be configurable.

Brotli is similar to gzip, but uses an inbuilt dictionary optimized for web traffic.
There is a PHP extension we can support:
We can also try our .htaccess trick of serving pre-heavily-compressed .br files directly if the browser accepts them, like we currently do with .gz.
Interesting/relevant note - Brotli is HTTPS-only. This is because they figure proxies will cache Brotli content served under HTTP and cause all kinds of bugs for UAs not supporting it.
