I don't see why this is needed.  The gzip plugin should already take
care of decompressing the file and detecting the filetype without ".gz".
I just tried and it works fine for me without the patch.

OK.  Note that "sql" has recently be changed, using "g:filetype_sql".
What kind of SQL does Zope use?

OK.  Although NEWS.Debian.gz isn't needed, as above.

This is a good time to send them.  Things that may need discussing can
go to the vim-dev list, the rest straight to me.

       When danger reared its ugly head,
       He bravely turned his tail and fled
       Yes, Brave Sir Robin turned about
       And gallantly he chickened out
       Bravely taking to his feet
       He beat a very brave retreat
       Bravest of the brave Sir Robin
       Petrified of being dead
       Soiled his pants then brave Sir Robin
       Turned away and fled.
