Plan to support add multithread support to gzip ?

I try to find if it is planned to add support to MP systems (by using posix 
thread) or not in gzip, in order to speed up compression/decompression of a 
single file. I didn't find any plan or question about this in the archive of 
this list.

In fact, I don't know if it's possible (I didn't yet go throught the gzip code 
in order to see if it's possible), so if there is not yet any plan, do you 
think that the gzip structure is able to support that ?

Many thanks for your answers.
