New submission from Rob Man <sir.mandic at gmail.com>:

Files written with gzip module write a value of 255 (unknown) at the 10th position in the header which defined what OS was used when gzip file was written. 
Files written with gzip linux command correctly set that field to the value of 3 (Unix).
This ehancement does that.
