It's worth considering although we get into detail as to how the flush
mode is expressed in the constructor (an int is awkward because of the
existing size parameter, and java.util.zip was well into adolescence
when enums were introduced). The other option is to just ignore it as
the proposed Deflater.deflate method supports full flush and it's not
too difficult to create your own OutputStream that uses Deflater.
