      Description

      Jalview can read gzipped streams - either from local file, URL or otherwise, but it needs to recognize the stream first.

      The URL Gzip stream recognition looks for a .gz suffix on the URL - this is fragile, and doesn't work with - for example, Rfam's Gzipped Stockholm file URLs:
      http://rfam.xfam.org/family/RF00014/alignment/stockholm?gzip=1&download=1
      These download as a .gz file (the browser recognizes this somehow) but Jalview throws a 'File format not recognized' error.
