People blame setuptools when pydoc doesn't work on packages in zip files. Rather than refer to some theoretical argument why it's not my fault and I shouldn't be the one to fix it, I prefer to fix the problem.
So rather than extract the zip at install time (something purely within setuptool's domain), you found modifying pydoc's behavior to be a more compelling story. Are you aware that zipimport fails on 64-bit systems in Python 2.3, or do you plan to patch over that as well?
