I'm putting it back to release blocker, because 3.3 should decide whether to fix it/call it security/remove itself from the list.

The patch contains several small changes.  I like the spelling fix (gsip -> gzip) in a test method, but otherwise, I prefer the alternative solution of an additional function parameter with a default.

I would prefer that the marker for "no limit" be None, rather than -1, 0, or anything less than 0.

I also don't see the point of raising a too-much-data ValueError *after* decoding.  While that *might* mean we set the default too low, all we would really know for sure is that there would be a bug in gzip.GzipFile().read -- and ValueError suggests otherwise.
