My understanding of the gzip specification (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1952.txt) is multiple files can be encoded sequentially in the file one after the other.
When I do this and open the .gz file in 7zip, the result is odd: it lists only the first file. Decompression decompresses all of the data together separated by a bit of garbage (a few extra 0x0A bytes).
The sample gzip file has two members, rfc1952.txt and rfc1953.txt (retrieved from the above location).
