I would be shocked if any significant subset of the people who have to
support this code would be interested in switching the compression
engine anyway.  (And changing deflate to use a different compression
engine works against the goal of 2.0.44 being a stable release.)

Meanwhile I haven't seen anybody besides myself suggesting that we
bundle the relevant parts of zlib, and in my experience that is
required in order to get a consistently successful build on Unix (not
that I would advocate doing it before 2.0.44 ships anyway).
