And a short followup -- I've gone through the zlib-devel mailing list
archives now.  I was unable to find any request for the rsync patches to
be merged into mainline zlib.  The mailing list archives only go back to
March 2002, so it could be that the request to merge came before that
directly to one of the zlib authors.  But if so, there's not a record of
what problems, if any, there were with the patch.
