[Pythonmac-SIG] Resource forks and HFS-metadata

Hi,

My program deals with zip transferring archives.  I'm curious as to  
whether Python (namely the 'zip' and 'zipfile') modules can be made  
to be aware of resource forks and HFS-metadata?  Or is this a  
limitation of the zip format itself?  According to this (old) hint:

I will have to have my program interact with `cpio` to preserve the  
metadata, which I'm trying to avoid.

Thanks
