------- Additional Comments From carej@us.ibm.com  2007-04-10 10:38 -------
Because there's no way to faithfully query the permissions in a pure-Java way?

Take a closer look at the permission-related API additions to java.io.File: I
don't see a way to query ALL of the permission data. The APIs that are there can
only tell you if the current process can read, write or execute a given file -
they don't cover world or groups.

You can _almost_ make an argument for permission preservation for <unzip>, but
even there the APIs don't cover standard UNIX permissions.
