Task Summary:
Fast nii header reading function for gz compressed files
Original Comment:
Current version of header reading function in niftitools package decompress the whole nii file before extracting the header. This is extremely slow when using large fMRI files and makes startup GUI extremely slow with larger analyses.

Faster version could decompress only the first parts of the nii.gz file and then extract the nifty header from this partial gz file. 

Slow functioning affects only when compressed nii.gz files are used. If files are decompressed before hand the startup GUI is fast.
