It can be useful to get whatever remaining data there exists in the 
decompression stream for further processing.  This is currently possible 
by creating a zlib.decompressobj and accessing its unused_data member, 
but that is quite cumbersome.
The attached patch adds a 'tail' keyword argument to zlib.decompress 
which causes the result to be a 2-tuple, with the first part containing 
the decompressed data, and the second containing any remaining data
