[Python-Dev] Inclusion of lz4 bindings in stdlib?


5 cents about lz4 alternatives: Broli (mentioned above) is widely supported
by web.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Accept-Encoding
mentions it along with gzip and deflate methods.
I don't recall lz4 or Zstd metioning in this context.

Both Chrome/Chromium and Firefox accepts it by default (didn't check
Microsoft products yet).

P.S.
I worked with lz4 python binding a year ago.
It sometimes crashed to core dump when used in multithreaded environment
(we used to run compressor/decompresson with asyncio by
loop.run_in_executor() call).
I hope the bug is fixed now, have no update for the current state.
