Ow ;)

Want me to hack it up for lynx? I'll use
as a basis (I did that for XFree86 as well, while removed
support for compressed fonts from their Xlib), which is GPL compatible.

iirc, libz is supposed to be able to do uncompress (perhaps with some option - I don't recall that). It would be useful to have that, though
the bug that I'm interested in at the moment is whether the external
uncompress is working properly.
