Perl + LWP + Compression?

I’ve recently been futzing around with Perl + LWP at the office. I used it to write a load test bot for our ASP.NET application (sigh, hate .NET). My main problem is that it doesnt give me a real world idea of the CPU load for the IIS machine, becuase normally we used compression & LWP doesnt seem to support compression.

Previously when I’ve needed compression support I’ve used CURL , but in this case I cant. Damned perl.
