Sorry Xavier, all of that info was in my original email, included
below for reference.  The patch we currently use for unzip has been
rejected more than once upstream and it is conflicting with zsh
autocompletion.  bsdtar apparently doesn't support localized win32 zip
files either, but p7zip does.

If the bsdtar maintainer wants to take it upstream that's fine, but in
the meantime I'd like to move forward with the unzip fix unless we
have a reason not to.
