Re: [Lzip-bug] Restarting an lzip member at any time

Hello Antonio,
for the API, in the header file I would do a simple forward declaration such as

struct LZ_EncoderImpl;
typedef LZ_EncoderImpl* LZ_Encoder;

struct LZ_DecoderImpl;
typedef LZ_DecoderImpl* LZ_Decoder;

so that the prototypes of your API look like

void LZ_compress_foo(LZ_Encoder encoder, otherargs);
void LZ_decompress_foo(LZ_Decoder decoder, otherargs);

and don't take a pointer onto something (no *), but an opaque and
typesafe handle.
