I agree that adding more options for testability is good.  Since our users
are likely to need such things as well, I'd also like to see such features
become public, analogous to zip's -fz- flag.

OTOH, interoperability testing is very valuable, so despite the troubles
involved writing tests that involve both jdk and zipinfo code, I think we
should do it.

shell tests are frowned upon these days.  Must use processutils?

Maybe we could actually collaborate and I contribute some test code?

Still haven't actually looked at your webrev ...
