[New-bugs-announce] [issue31358] Pull zlib out to cpython-source-deps

New submission from Zachary Ware:

We currently bundle zlib in our source at Modules/zlib, but it is only used on Windows.  The soon-to-be-attached PR instead pulls it from https://github.com/python/cpython-source-deps

There is one failure in test_venv only when zlib is not built at all, which I have not yet investigated.

/cc doko as the most recent updater of the bundled copy of zlib.
