Good idea, and thanks for posting a patch! This is a new feature, so 3.3-only. Also, you'll need to update the docs (Doc/library/zlib.rst, presumably) to add the new module method/attribute (with a suitable "versionadded" tag).
- "zlibVersion" isn't PEP8-compliant
- semantically it should probably be a module-level attribute, rather than a method; after all it's kind of a constant; perhaps ZLIB_RUNTIME_VERSION?
Also, I see that ZLIB_VERSION itself isn't documented, it would be nice to have a separate patch to fix that.
stage: -> patch review
