Zip code database?

 I looked around and could not find a good "up to date" U.S. zipcode 
database. I found a couple, but they are all derivatives of the U.S. 
census TIGER 2000 database which is missing a good number of entries and 
lacks any alias information, like Dorchester vs Boston. 

Does anyone know of a valid zip code database that can be downloaded? 

I have begun analyzing the latest TIGER 2006SE database and am putting 
together a list of zipcodes and am joining them to external sources of 
reference to build a more comprehensive DB. It would be easier if I didn't 
have to do this, obviously. 

Conversely, if no one knows of anything, should I make my results public?
