[Distutils] specify zip method (ZIP_STORED, ZIP_DEFLATED)

is there a way to specify the zip method like
ZIP_STORED or ZIP_DEFLATED as in python zipfile module ?

I think it is possible to speed up something if ZIP_STORED is
used to "compress" egg packages. (not tested only thoughts)
And on a platform with no zlib it schould be possible to create
.egg files.

I have searched the docu but nothing found on that topic.
