I wouldn't know how it differs, but there's http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/System.IO.Compression.aspx, as well as http://www.componentace.com/zlib_.NET.htm.
 
In general, I would expect something like this to be in the framework itself, not in IP, or C#, or any other .NET language in particular.  To make a generally useful set of classes dependent on a specific language goes against the spirit of .NET.

d'oh, hadn't thought of googling for that! I gave up when just
googling for zlib brought back very few results.

Are there any plans to build this in to IP? As it's something that's
built in to CPython?

Thanks very much.
