_Z suffix

Hi all.

> gzip -f test_Z
gzip: test_Z already has _Z suffix -- unchanged

But the gzip man page lists ony the following suffixes (admittedly: for gunzip;
but one would expect the same in this case):

.gz, -gz, .z, -z, _z or .Z

(Same problem exists for files like test-Z.)
How can I force compression on such files? (with suffix _Z, -Z)

> gzip --version
gzip 1.3.12 (SUSE 10.0, x86)

Looking at the code I would guess that the suffix tests should not use
downcasing (e.g. strlwr call in line 975 of gzip.c).
