Hey folks,

We discussed this a long time ago, but I don't really remember what the
result was. Would it be possible to add zlib (or equivalent) bindings to
NSE so we could read/write a compressed stream?

I know the http-git script needed it, but we worked around. There was
recently a zimbra vulnerability that would have made it easier, and I'm
hoping to write a SPDY script, and that also requires compression.

Is there anything holding us back from including zlib?

(I'd offer to code the bindings, but I've never done NSE->C bindings
before. :( )

Usually there are existing bindings which we should use first:

(from a quick Google). Should be simple enough to copy to a
nse_zlib.cc with appropriate attributions.
