I uploaded a possible patch for Python 2.7.

The patch converts ZipExtFile into subclass of io.BufferedIOBase and drops most of the original implementation.

However, the patch breaks current newline behavior of ZipExtFile. I figured this was reasonable because zipfile newline behavior:
a) was introduced in Python 2.6
b) was incompatible with behavior of io module files.
c) was not documented.

Reading zip content as text with newline functionality may be done with io.TextIOWrapper.

A bonus of sub classing io.BufferedIOBase is significantly better read performance.
