3.1.0 has a configure option --with-included-popt=no that can be used to get
rsync to use the system's popt library.  I changed the rsync code to be able to
support this, and in my limited testing it appears to work fine.

There is going to be some new support for adding dictionary data during the
transfer in the official zlib code, but I haven't yet tested to see if using
this new support is identical to the rsync kluges or not.  If it is, the rsync
code will eventually be updated to use the official support.

As for the "0, 0, ff, ff" bytes, Mark Adler mentions that these are documented,
so it should be fine to tweak things based on that.
