Okay, I've attached two files:

1. Scheme.zip, from issue 5701
2. "zftest.py", a script that you run in the same dir as "Scheme.zip" to produce this:

$ python zftest.py 
Extracting: 1!SCHEME.Z64
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "zftest.py", line 8, in <module>
    child_data = parent.read(zinfo)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/zipfile.py", line 931, in read
    return self.open(name, "r", pwd).read()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/zipfile.py", line 1006, in open
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/zipfile.py", line 530, in __init__
    raise NotImplementedError("compression type %d (%s)" % (self._compress_type, descr))
NotImplementedError: compression type 6 (implode)
