Yes, subprocess works fine and was the quickest to implement and
probably the fastest to run too.

How can I put this without being an ass? Hell, I'm no good at diplomacy
- the gzip module blows chunks - if I can shell out to a standard unix
util and it uses a tiny fraction of the memory to do the same job the
module is inherently broken no matter how pretty it's code looks.

You can of course tell me to STFU - but look around the web I won't be
the first or last user to bemoan "import gzip"... :)
