Brett wrote a pure python zipimporter in http://bugs.python.org/issue17630 :)

FWIW, the zipimport.c implementation (in 2.7) causes us serious pain when we've got the stdlib in a .zip file and need to update that while there are running python processes (which have cached the central directory of that .zip file but do not also keep a fd to the zip file open or even attempt to stat the file to see if it has changed [racy but it'd still be better than the nothing that is done now]).
