comment Is hash calculated before/after compression?
That's true. It depends on the details of each protocol, certainly. If the compression is done at a higher level than the protocol (such as HTTP gzip compression over TCP), then the TCP checksum has no knowledge of the HTTP gzip compression in the TCP payload, and it certainly isn't possible to checksum the uncompressed data at the TCP level.

Why do you say that this is O(n+k)? How do you think defaultdict is implemented?
