I did test with my sample data and compared zstd with deflate.
zstd's compress ratio is lower a little bit but compression
speed is much faster 3 times more and decompress speed is too
2 times more. With different data, it is different but overall,
zstd would be better for speed at the cost of a little lower compress
ratio(about 5%) so I believe it's worth to replace deflate.

Thanks for the patch, Sergey.
