This sounds better, but was beyond my Boost knowledge.
( For the m-l archive, I noticed my xsgetn() doesn't decrement the n
variable correctly. )
Then again, perhaps the stream_signature_filter should just try out each
decompressor in turn, and whichever does not throw an exception should
be allowed to continue. Please allow it to stream through unknown
compression schemes, especially uncompressed files :-)

Excellent, thank you!
