Agreed; that link was just from my last zlib tag from a few years ago.  I would 
definitely prefer something on the lines of Daniel's non-blocking codecs, as 
that makes for easier integration with network streams.

A clean implementation of the encoding is also missing (and that's where the 
parameterisation is needed to choose a time/space tradeoff, although it doesn't 
matter much at all on modern hardware).
