Where is the "ziper" variable used? I don't see how this code does 
anything except create an empty zipfile.

$ python samplecode.py

$ unzip test.zip
Archive:  test.zip
warning [test.zip]:  zipfile is empty

If you Google for <zipfile empty> you will find a python-list thread 
with this solution in it:


Alternatively you could submit a patch or a bug.
