I might be okay with not having Zlib in IronRuby when IR is hosted within
Silverlight (partially because that framework is missing
System.IO.Compression).  But I'd expect IronRuby's Zlib to be 100%
compatible with MRI's ZLib when used on the desktop and server.  100% or as
close as we can get it.

Hey Charlie, what are you guys doing for Zlib in JRuby?
