We ought to collect some requirements/goals for the ZIP import stuff. The current draft of the PEP is a little thin on motivation.
Requirement: A ZIP archive be usable any version of Python that supports ZIP-based imports.
It might also be nice to have a imputil- or ihook-based importer that works with older versions of Python.
