You should be fine using "<I", but I'd rather look out whether it's really
always "<", as this means little-endian. I don't know whether gzipped files
are always written as little endian (this would feel strange, as big-endian
is the "portable way"), or whether they are dependent on the host platform
they were generated on. I'd do some reading up on this before really fixing
for a solution...
