Well, OK. I was not aware of this RFC. I guessed it by looking at the
code of gzip, that uses the CRC as well. I also found some reference
into a blog post.

Fat-fingered here..

gcc and clang did not complain here, what did you use?

Not that I see. All the code paths using gzfp are under

No problem for me, thanks for the review!
