WinNT and DLL's

I'm in the middle (almost literally, lots of paper) of developing an
application to be used on Windows NT, and maybe Win'95 systems. One of
the things I have not managed to find available anywhere, is an
interface to PkZip/Pkunzip zipped programs. I have tried using the
gzip and zlib modules on the files I am working with, and they don't
like the input files.
In searching for info about unzipping, I ran across the info-zip
unzip (and zip) source code, however I do not have the knowledge in
c/c++ to implement a python interface to these dll's.
Is there a way that I can simply access the pre-compiled dll files?
(I noticed a loadlibrary method in the (truly excellent) win32api
module, can I do something with this?)
Or alternately, is there someone who would be willing and able to
perform whatever magic is required to compile the dll so that Python
can access it?
I really hate asking for this level of help when I don'thave much
(if anything) to offer in return, but a search on Deja, and in the FAQ
didn't point me to any easy answers) and I have tried reading the swig
docs, but my brain just hit snooze, and never woke up till the next
day. (Not a knock about the doc writer, just a comment about what I
can read and comprehend)
