«...PerlIO::via::gzip will probably work as fast as "zcat"» (NetWallah)
«If you have at least one idle CPU, using open "zcat $file |" will allow you to spread the load across two CPUs...» (Corion)
«...Perhaps when you implemented it will be as slow as Compress::Zlib.» (vsespb)
«...This is faster than using Compress::Zlib's gzseek!!!» (roysperlarnab)

No volunteers to benchmark this?
