[Distutils] Easy install and zipimporter

I've been implementing zipimport module recently for the pypy project and I
came to the following problem:

When zipimport is there, easy install is mangling with
zipimport._zip_directory_cache, which is
a) undocumented in importer protocol
b) starts with an _
c) explodes when I compile pypy and import site.py (providing that I've got
easy_install installed)

Any propositions what to do here? Just providing _zip_directory_cache is not
really an option, since it has no documentation and no unittests, which
means it might change at any moment.
