Compressed exec and core files


I'm working on a patch to BFD to support opening compressed
exec and core files transparently.  When bfd_fopen is called
to open a compressed file, the file would be decompressed into
a temporary file, and the bfd for the temp returned.  Compression
with gzip and bzip2 would be supported (others can be added later).

This seems pretty straight-forward.  Any thoughts or comments?
