FYI, if you want a streaming interface to zlib, you can try this out:

It is a small bit of code that I wrote for fun.  Note that it
currently hard-codes deflateInit() and inflateInit(), but after more
experience of using zlib, I now know that if you want gzip headers to
be properly read, you need to use inflateInit2() and pass in MAX_WBITS
+ 32 magic number for the window size :-(.  I'll see about fixing

I should also add options so that deflateInit2() parameters may be
specified (give the library more flexibility).
