I found this http://www.codeproject.com/KB/stl/zipstream.aspx and there are 
other alternatives listed here http://www.zlib.net/apps.gz.html but I don't 
know if they are as convenient as gzstream for C++.

I'm up to co-maintain it with you but I'm not DD so you would be my sponsor 
for that particular package. Let me know if this is ok for you.
