Thanks in advance for your work. Well, I can see that we could also support users/groups with zip files, which is also implemented in InfoZIP. Or we might add a Sub-Interface like PosixPermissionAttributes/PosixPermissionAttributesView. However, in any case, we have to find a way to deal with the optionality of any POSIX attributes in zip files.

So, let's see what you come up with ��
