So it looks like I'll have to go back to `tar-mode'. I should be able
to get some work done on that front over the weekend, and I'll resubmit
a `tar-mode'-based package.el.

Agreed, especially since it appears to be linked in already. However,
I'd like my new package.el to work out-of-the-box on Emacs 24.3, so I
wouldn't be able to rely on libz support (should it appear in Emacs 24.4
or 25.1).
