Help needed with apache config for hackage

Hi folks,

Does anyone have any experience with apache configuration, particularly
mime types and handling browser quirks and would like to help us with an
issue we have on hackage?

The problem is described in the ticket but basically IE6 gets confused
by the Content-Type and Content-Encoding and ends up saving ".tar.gz"
files with the wrong name ".tar.tar".

We need help working out how to configure apache to use a workaround and
with testing that the solution actually works.
