Let's take it one thing at a time.

First question.

What is the means by which I can create an ELF file such that the
segment data is compressed, but the segment headers are not, and I can
know which compression algorithm was used, so that I can do a
streaming decompress of a segment into memory, a.k.a zero-copy?
