Yes, that's what I've done.  Each zlib-decompress-region now has two
separate pairs of b/a-c-f, one for insert, then the other for delete.
This is the way that other "coding" primitives, like
base64-encode-region work.

Yes.  But it's nice to have things consistent.  :-)

Anyhow, here's the patch, which appears to work as described above.  Any
comments?  Otherwise I'll commit it.
