While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that dictzip adds the filename and timestamp to the generated .dz files.

The attached patch adds a --no-name flag (like gzip) that disables this.
This will make it easier and cleaner for maintainers to make their
builds reproducible.
