We are locking down on V1, and we will not be able to get to this in V1. We will revisit this later. Thanks for the report.

the file test_zipimport.py in the standard CPython distribution may help test compaitibilityhttp://www.koders.com/python/fidE7FE7D6953FB6F810BA56C90C8D0930FDE6BC783.aspx

zipimport is needed for setuptools - which is needed for projects like Turbogears. Setuptools is increasingly becoming the standard way of distributing Python packages - so not being able to use it with IronPython is quite a problem (Jython guys have got setuptools compatibility ;-)

@primco

The test version of zipimport uses importlib and so is not that helpful. More helpful is the pure Python version that Guido implemented for the AppEngine.

Missing is directory metadata cache support that setuptools needs, but that should be trivial to add.

It looks like zlib support is also needed for setuptools.
