btw. the zip command isn't builtin on Unix either. It's only available if
you installed the corresponding InfoZIP package(s). I know pretty much
every Linux-distribution comes preinstalled with it (because of stuff like
ark, a KDE-frontend for archivers, requiring it), but you shouldn't rely on
that either.
