Why not? After gunzipping, you can inspect what is in it:

(FileStream readOnlyFileNamed:'ENGRENAGE4.001') fileInObjectAndCode

You get an ImageSegment containing 9195 objects with 250 outpointers.  
The objects have these classes:

(arrayOfRoots collect: [:each | each class]) asBag sortedCounts

Or you could have a look which forms are in the segment:

arrayOfRoots select: [:each | each isKindOf: Form]

#(Form(197x132x16) ColorForm(443x444x8) ColorForm(152x152x8)  
Form(287x287x16) ColorForm(287x287x8) Form(152x152x16) Form(9x11x16)  
Form(443x444x16) Form(9x11x16))

These appear to be your 3 gears as originally imported (the 8-bit  
forms) plus the same but with a painted dot on top (the 16-bit forms).

And so on.
