in thread dynamic zcat and grep

Sorry my help was not helpful.

I've looked at the docs for zcat (well, OpenBSD's docs for zcat) and it seems that your first and third choices should work: zcat unzips the input file to STDOUT. When I get a chance (probably about 24 hours from now), I'll muck about on by OpenBSD box to see if I can replicate your results.
