Enable indexing of gzip compressed blobs
I am trying to setup Azure Search over Azure Blob. The json blobs are compressed using gzip.
When I try to index the blobs as-is, I get the exception :
"Error detecting index schema from data source: "Error processing blob https://mystorageaccount.blob.core.windows.net/mycontainer/urlencodedname with content type ''. Status:UnsupportedMediaType, error:""
Looks like Azure Search blob indexer does support indexing ZIP archives (application/zip MIME type), but not gzip-compressed files.

My JSON data is stored in blobs as application/zip [to minimize my API bandwidth requirements (38M json == 1M json.zip)
I'd like to use the JSON field mapping [currently in preview] facilities by having the indexer unzip and then apply the index config to the resulting .json
