[Distutils] pkg_resources: feature request

I just added a WSGI app in paste.urlparser.PkgResourceParser 
to serve static files using pkg_resources's resource API.  Two new 
methods would be useful there: resource_mtime and resource_size. 
Alternately, resource_stat, which would return an os.stat-compatible 
object.  But a lot of what os.stat returns doesn't apply well to a zip 
file entry, even if mtime and size do.  I'm not sure if mtime should be 
the mtime of the zip file itself, or the date_time of the entry.
