> Here is preliminary translation of zipimport to Python. It is not frozen and imports other modules.

Technically, will it be possible to freeze it? It seems useful to keep the ability to put the whole stdlib into a single ZIP. Using a ZIP is sometimes suggested to avoid fstat() on disk for example, to speedup Python startup.

But I also understand that the C code is painful to maintain and update.

Anyway, nice job Serhiy :-)
