[webkit-dev] Request for feedback on CompressionStream and DecompressionStream

I am trying to gauge feedback on compression streams with a view to
shipping them in Chromium.

Very briefly, they are a way to do gzip and gunzip in the browser. Less
briefly, the explainer
https://github.com/WICG/compression/blob/master/explainer.md goes into some
detail of the how and why. The specification
https://wicg.github.io/compression/ gives verbose detail of how. You may
also find the W3C TAG review
https://github.com/w3ctag/design-reviews/issues/410 interesting.

Any and all feedback is welcome!

Q. Will this support brotli, zstd, etc.?
A. Not yet. It's on the radar.
