Details

Once we land native jetpacks, we'll work integration with itchpad and we'll need some way to write zips, and possibly read zips (in order to make xpis).  I think would also be a useful api for add-ons devs.
Alex started work on a `sdk/zip` module in https://github.com/mozilla/addon-sdk/compare/cfx-js#diff-11
Priority: -- → P2
Would be nice if we could just implement same API as most popular zip lib on npm.

+1.
Some work was done using Alex's zip module as well for my autoreloading jetpack addon from Paris workweek:

Not sure if any changes were made to it from Alex's, but can see it in use with modern APIs
