[New-bugs-announce] [issue31638] zipapp module should support compression

New submission from Zhiming Wang <zmwangx at gmail.com>:

Currently (up to 3.7.0a1) archives generated by the zipapp module are uncompressed, which are unnecessarily large for large projects. It's easy to add deflate compression support, and Python loads compressed archives just fine.

I already have a patch available. I'll submit a PR soon.
