New submission from Serhiy Storchaka <storchaka at gmail.com>:

ZIP files specification supports new compression algorithms since 2006. Since bzip2 and lzma now contained in Python standart library, it would be nice to add support for these methods in zipfile. This will allow to process more foreign zip files and create more compact distributives.

The proposed patch adds two new methods ZIP_BZIP2 and ZIP_LZMA, which are automatically detecting when unpacking and that can be used for packing.
