Got docpack working on my "narrow build" Cygwin Python which doesn't support unicode characters above 0xffff, with some really nasty hacks. I'm not even going to try to backport this to Python-1.5. I've added 'dpcat' and 'dpgrep' routines to it, the latter as a very primitive proof of the ability to search the compressed files without decompressing -- it will decompress only when it's already found the search term in the packed source.
