If gradle doesn't use Ant's zip package (or Apache Commons Compress) but rather there will be many differences (internal and external attributes,
possibly UTF encoding flags, likely more).  I don't think you can achieve
binary identical archives if the underlying implementations are different at

Outside of your very specific use-case adding an attribute to the zip task to
DEFLATE directory entries (along with the cost of testing, documenting and
maintaining said flag) doesn't really seem to make sense.
