To be honest, I don't know. The zip tests should clearly be run but they 
are unlikely to stress the zip code in the same way that the IDEs, app 
servers, and other big applications do. If there is a compelling reason 
to do another zlib update in 7 then I would suggest running as many of 
these as you can to increase the confidence that there won't be an 
issues. If this is too much work then it might be better to just prepare 
the patch to go in once jdk8 opens for business.
