Bug#383617: Please support parsing tagfiles from gzip.open()

Package: python-apt
Version: 0.5.10
Severity: wishlist

(but also verified in 0.6.19)

One cannot feed a gzip.open()'d file into apt_pkg.ParseTagFile(). This
would be a convenient feature. ParseTagFile says:

TypeError: argument 1 must be file, not instance

I'm unfortunately too unaware of the details of filedescriptors in
python to know how to best resolve this.
