Performance is easily improved by wrapping the file object in a
io.BufferedReader or io.BufferedWriter:

Text 1 byte block test
Original gzip Write:    2.125 s Read:    0.683 s
New gzip      Write:    0.390 s Read:    0.240 s

Text 4 byte block test
Original gzip Write:    1.077 s Read:    0.351 s
New gzip      Write:    0.204 s Read:    0.132 s

Text 16 byte block test
Original gzip Write:    1.119 s Read:    0.353 s
New gzip      Write:    0.264 s Read:    0.137 s

Still, fixing the seek()/tell() issue would be nice.
