Since obviously the intention of putting the module in the zipfile was that it should be found, I think that failure to decompress should be turned into an immediate error -- the same way as a syntax error gets reported and not turned into a "skip to the next directory in sys.path" effect.

Just say so in the patch. You can upoad anything you want. :-)
OK, I will post the implementation.
