If you do it right, none. Some browsers, like IE 5 and maybe 6, have  
problems with compressed, cached JavaScript and other weird edge  
cases. However, most HTTP servers come configured to deal with this  
correctly using content negotiation.

Sure, not everyone runs HTTP server software which implements these  
facilities, but I posit that the 80% case is covered.
