Extend gzip_static module to handle more accept-encodings

As new Accept-Encodings are added, notably br and zstd, please extend the gzip_static directive to accept more values:
“on” - return .gz on Accept-Encoding: gzip
“on br” - return .br files on Accept-Encoding: br or Accept-Encoding br, gzip or Accept-Enoding: gzip, br; return .gz files on Accept-Encoding: gzip
"br" - return .br files on Accept-Encoding: br

Currently ngx_brotli can do the latter option with “brotli_static", but it is tedious task to configure both gzip_static an brotli_static at all places.

Moreover, zstd comes as next Accept-Encoding and for browsers accepting all of zstd, gz and br, the server shall deliver the smallest file, if all three static-variansts are available. This shall be done in a single module. See also .
