I'm converting my project into python3. I'm encountering issue with zipfile encoding. Look like, it only support unicode path. This is a huge issue since path are, by definition, bytes. You may store a file name with an invalid character without issue on the filesystem.
As such, arcname should support bytes.
Like, Tar, zip file format doesn't define a specific encoding. You may store filename as bytes.
