We do, there is no "rewinding the compressed stream", we have to restart from the first byte of the file everytime we need to go back in the file.
So in theory, something like that could be added. It's just seems a lot of complexity for little practical benefits imho.

Is this also true for pcf.Z and pcf.bz2? I would like to warn about this in the docs.
