No objection to adding a knob for this but do we need changes for
reading too? I'm just concerned that someone could use ZipOutputStream
to create a zip or JAR file that is not readable (in the same VM).
On the property name then we've started using jdk.* for JDK-specific
properties. Also as the default is to support ZIP64 when writing then
maybe this should have a disable* name so someone can specify
-Djdk.util.zip.disableZip64 on the command line without specifying a value.
