zlib compressor and decompressor objects can be copied with the copy() method, but not with copy.copy(). It is easy to add support of copy protocol to them (just add __copy__() as an alias to copy()).

per serhiy's suggestion, added two aliases.

Patch looks good, but incomplete. Supporting __deepcopy__ (as a simple wrapper around __copy__ that ignores the second argument) would provide complete support.

Also, should there be tests? I mean, I assume the .copy() method itself is tested, but just to detect stupid regressions, seems like testing __copy__/__deepcopy__ for identical behavior would be a good thing.

I agree with Josh. Needed __deepcopy__ and tests. And I think there may be problem with sharing a docstring (that includes a signature) between copy() and __copy__(). It is better to just add separate method that calls the implementation of copy().
