multibyte GZipped files

I'm having lots of trouble reading japanese documentation that's
GZipped.  Somehow auto-compression mode is interfering with coding

Opening a gzipped text file will normally set the buffer into uni-byte
mode.  So before I'm able to use `decode-coding-region' I first have to
call `toggle-enable-multibyte-characters' (which caused a lot of
confusion since I'm used to Buffers being multibyte).

Specifying the coding system via C-x <Ret> c euc-jp C-x f <file>.gz 
won't work either.  The resulting buffer will just be empty.

A similar problem might be related: I'm not able to read japanese info
files with Emacs, when they're GZipped.

I'm using Emacs 21.1 which came with Debian Woody.  Any help would be
