Right, using the io module makes GzipFile as fast as zcat.

I submit a new patch this time for Python 2.7, however, it is not a 
module rewrite, but again minimal refactoring.

GzipFile is now derived of io.BufferedRandom, and as result the 
functionality of GzipFile changed since it used to behave differently 
than io classes. For example write() did not return number of bytes 
written, etc... Also, I hacked it a little to make it work with a raw 
stream which is either readable or writable but not both. If it is 
unacceptable, or if you prefer a module rewrite, I don't mind discussing 
and evolving this further.
