If you are unpickling from a multi-megabyte gzip file and the seek at
the end makes you uncompress all the gzip file again, it can certainly
be a problem.

Another issue with seeking only at the end is that it would make
readline() quite more complicated. And, apparently, readline() is not
only used on protocol 0 but also on binary protocols.
