Couldn’t that be special-cased? Check if a stream advertised as “deflate”
starts with 1F 08, handle it as gzip instead. Maybe warn the user, but
that warning would be at least as annoying as the google invalid cookies…

I could try to dig out the site unless you have it handy, then hack some
code to do that, if you desire.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
