Assume the buffers and flags of an LZ_Decoder are filled with some kind of data, but for some reason (for instance a stream corruption) you want forward up to the next member and start decompression from there.

Such functionality might be very useful for parallelizing decompression, at least that of multi-member files.

Thus instead of destroying and recreating a LZ_Decoder, a useful function would be to somehow clear the buffers and reset the internal flags to a state equivalent to a decoder just after creation,

Why is the destroy/recreate way unsuitable? Does it incur a performance penalty too big? (I have no idea.)
