What I would like to suggest that, when doing "Follow TCP stream" there is
an option to show unzipped http data.
Or, perhaps, when doing "Follow HTTP session".  Yes, that means adding  
a "Follow HTTP session" menu item, but, as the code that implements  
"Follow TCP stream" is in the TCP dissection code, and doesn't even  
know what HTTP *is*, much less how to unzip it, that might make more  
sense.  It might also be possible to interpret more of the session if  
there's a "Follow" option that understands HTTP.  (For example, it  
might not try to display non-text reply bodies, e.g. images, as if  
they were blobs of text.)
