What I'm thinking would be useful is a library, with the portability 
level of glib, offering the functionality of creating and extracting 
files from zip archives.  I envisage it using both glib and zlib, 
and offering a basic API with these elements:

* A function to create a zip file, given a target filename, a list 
of files to archive, and a compression level.

* A function to retrieve a list of file attributes from a zip 

* A function to extract all, or a selected list of, files from a zip 

Take a look at libzip
It doesn't directly write files to the file system, but makes it
very easy to do so yourself, and supports your other requested

There is also libgsf which is more gobject oriented.
