The GNU zip program (gzip) supports .Z and .z archives, so if you only want to
support UNIX-like systems you could simply look for a program named "gunzip"
or "uncompress" and use that.

The format is now so antiquated (replaced almost totally with zlib/gzip
compression) that I doubt you'll see it in python, but
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LZW seams to sport a python implementation.
