> python -m pyzaa pack [-o path/name] [-m module.submodule:callable] [-c] [-w] [-p interpreter] directory:
>    ZIP the contents of directory as directory.pyz or [-w] directory.pyzw. Adds the executable flag to the archive.
> ...
>    -p interpreter include #!interpreter as the first line of the archive

What happens when -p is omitted? I'd hope it would add the interpreter used to create the zip (or at least the major version), but that may not be ideal for some reason that I haven't thought of yet.

Everything else looks great. I'm really looking forward to this.
