[New-bugs-announce] [issue17189] Add zip64 support to shutil

William Mallard report at bugs.python.org

New submission from William Mallard:

This patch enables creation of 64-bit zip files via make_archive().

make_archive uses ZipFile to create zip files. ZipFile already supports creation of 64-bit archives via a kwarg, but make_archive hard-codes it to 32-bit. This patch exposes the option in a backwards compatible way.
