Sounds good.

Compressing part of the input could be significantly different from
compressing all of the input depending on the algorithm. In particular
it could be most costly to do so and/or result in worse compression.

So while I'm happy to add such an interface I think we should keep
crypto_comp_compress as well for full compression.

I've whipped up something quick and called it crypto_comp_pcompress.
How does this interface look to you?

Cheers,
