Gzip files can contains an extra field and some applications use this for extending gzip format. The current GzipFile implementation ignores this field on input and doesn't allow to create a new file with an extra field.

I propose to save an extra field data on reading as a GzipFile attribute and add new parameter for GzipFile constructor for creating new file with an extra field.
