just to give you an idea of the speed up:
a 3.3 mb zip file extracted using the current all-python implementation on my machine (win xp 1.67Ghz 1.5GB) takes approximately 38 seconds.
the same file when extracted using c implementation takes 0.4 seconds.
If this matters to the users of the API, then likely they'd search for alternatives -- no need for it to go into the standard library just because it replaces functionality, or am I misunderstanding?
