I have to mark this with a big "Whoa there!"

I wrote Archive::Unzip::Burst because Archive::Zip was notoriously slow when starting a PAR packaged application. A::U::B is just a very, very thin wrapper around a copy of the infozip library and exposes only a tiny fraction of the features.

More problematic yet, the module is known to only build on Linux. There was some effort by people on the PAR mailing list to get it to work on Win32, but to no avail yet.

Note that infozip itself is portable, just the integration into the module build system was... challenging.

By the way: Patches welcome :)
