Using gzip means you can compress only 1 file per gzip; so you'll have
to invent something like tar to put all your files in your directories
together into 1 file and then apply gzip on that file to get it

Using the zipfile module should allow you to create a standard
winzip-compatible archive that puts all files directly into 1
compressed archive.
