What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. compress with Zopfli
2. run DeflOpt on its output... it's sometimes further compressed

What is the expected output?
Zopfli is supposed to produce the smallest Deflate stream

What do you see instead?
It's not the case since DeflOpt can still reduce Zopfli output

What version of the product are you using?
Current source

On what operating system?

On enwik8:

***                 DeflOpt V2.07                 ***
***       Built on Wed Sep  5 18:56:30 2007       ***

File rewritten.

Number of files processed  :        1

DeflOpt is avaible here:
It can be run on Linux using Wine.

Defluff is a similar tool:

Thanks for the report. Anything that makes the output smaller is good. We're 
considering to add improved tree encoding to Zopfli.

Is this feature still planned for inclusion into zopfli?

I would like to see this feature added.  I am avoiding using zopfli for 
anything because I don't want to implant it now and then a second time when 
this feature is added.
