I've opened bug #2590 (http://www.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?ProjectName=IronPython&WorkItemId=2590) to track this.  We have another compression request bug already (PEP 273 zip archive module support) and these two would go hand-in-hand.  No ETA on when we'd get to this though, but most likely sooner than supporting pyd's :).

Supporting any/all CPython plug-ins unchanged is clearly a big task -- but implementing zlib support shouldn't be very difficult.  That's what Mat was asking for...
