      Description

      If you do the following:

      - create a zip file containing some files
      - delete the original files
      - restore the files from the zip

      Results:
      All of the original permissions and ownership have changed to:
      owner: whomever did the restore
      permissions: whatever the umask calls for (on UNIX)

      IMHO it is a HUGE problem that the JDK uses a least-common-denominator approach to java.io I.e. no permissions or ownership support!
