Thanks Brendan, I have also noticed node.js 0.6+ implemented a Zlib native

Pipe oriented objects a part, the concept of having callbacks to eventually
put the task in the background is not that bad too

I still think convenience Methods

are not truly the best option for a cross platform ES API ( i.e. no way to
configure them if not via create() ) but it should not be hard to define an
object option for the encode procedure ... something to think about but at
least an effort to bring it in would be more than appreciated, thanks.
