I would like to make an C extension module which basically would have the ZipImporter type defined in the ``zipimport.c`` which defines most things related to ZipImporter to be public so that way one can set it to ``.tp_base`` on their C extension.

That should hopefully in the C side of things allow subclassing the zipimporter class outside of the Python layer as well. Otherwise I would have to manually copy the said definition from zipimport.c and that could be a huge risk if a bug or something in the ZipImporter was fixed that it wont automatically be fixed in the C version of the subclass. I want precisely this and for it to be exposed to other people who might want to subclass the zipimporter class outside of the Python layer as well.
