Note, I thought of the "tail" argument to reflect the "unused_data" 
member of the decompressobj().  But a more useful way is actually this:
result, offset = zlib.decompress(buffer, offset=0)
if offset<len(buffer):
    result2, offset = zlib.decompress(buffer, offset=offset)

This avoids data copying as much as possible.  The presence of a non-
default offset argument, would trigger the "tuple" return value.

We could add the same argument to decompressobj.decompress, and 
add "unused_offset" member there for symmetry.

Any thoughts?
