The zipp package implements a pathlib-compatable wrapper for zipfiles and is used by the importlib_metadata project. The port of importlib_metadata to importlib.metadata (bpo-34632) currently embeds that functionality, but this functionality is probably better exposed as part of the zipfile or pathlib modules.
Yesterday, at PyCon sprints, we considered which stdlib module would be better to host this functionality, and a quick analysis revealed that there's no pathlib dependency but there is a zipfile dependency, suggesting that zipfile should be preferred.
