 I wish more things supported transparently viewing gzipped files :)

I remember there once was a library which overloaded the original libc
functions for opening files. You had to preload it by setting the
variable LD_PRELOAD to this lib (like you do with libtrash). Once you
had done that, all and every program was able to read compressed files

OK, after searching with Google I found out that this this is in
Debian. Of course, yeah, how could I even THINK of something NOT being
part of Debian - besides XFree 4.2. :-)

zlibc - Uncompressing C Library

There's also AVFS, which can do more than just unpack gz (i.e. RPM and so on):
