Thanks for doing all that.

In NEWS, there should be one "New features" section, not two.

I had difficulty following the new documentation. Perhaps it's because of the word "synchronize" and the recently-added --synchronous option. Also, the phrase "cannot tell the difference" is confusing -- it's trying to talk about the output of gunzip, not about gunzip itself. And "reduces compression" is ambiguous, since compression already reduces. How about something like the following instead?

@item --rsyncable
Cater better to the @command{rsync} program.  Although does not compress
quite as well, it lets the @code{rsync} program take advantage of
similarities in the uncompressed input when synchronizing two files
compressed with this flag.
