Zip imports on python 2.2?

I have a university shell account with 10MB quota (most of it filled
by mail).  At last they've installed python 2.2 (they forgot curses,
sockets and some other nice modules but never mind ;).  Now I'm
installing some modules, notably docutils, under my home directory and
it takes even more of my quota...

Is there some pure-python way to use zip imports in Python 2.2 so I
can save space by compressing the installed modules?
