Improvements to GZIP middleware to improve performance

I've modified the gzip middleware so that it will only compress the response for HTTP status code 200 and if the response body is greater than 200 bytes long. This improves behavior when used in conjunction with E-TAGS and CommonMiddleware and avoids unnecessary work.

The patch also includes updates to the documentation for this middleware.

good idea! Although - note the typo in middleware.txt, "execute" should be "executed"
