[Ironruby-core] zlib implementation

We would love to have a managed implementation since it makes life so much easier - especially as we begin the inevitable move to 64 bit in the future.

I haven't done the investigation between zlib and System.IO.Compression. Are you volunteering, Mike? :)

I'd assume a managed library for cross platform compatibility.  Is anyone familiar with the difference between Zlib and System.IO.Compression?  Is it possible to use wrap System.IO.Compression to get a compatible Ruby Zlib lib?  Or do we need a new managed Zlib implementation?

On the ironruby.net<http://ironruby.net> page it says that you're looking for a zlib implementation.  Is that a managed re-implementation of zlib or a managed wrapper around the unmanaged zlib library?
