The "original" zip does not, but it does with the "InfoZIP"  
extensions. Since InfoZIP is the ZIP distribution used on most unixes  
(including OS X), these extensions have now become the quasi-standard,  
and are supported in all recent unix-zips (and ant as well). But as I  
said, something to look into for for the next release.
