I noticed that while lzma and bz2 already support the "x" (create a new file, raise if it already exists) flag, zipfile and tarfile don't know about it yet.  It would be an useful addition, just as it is useful for regular open.

A quick look at both modules show that this likely only requires a little bit more than updating the checks in the corresponding constructors to allow "x" mode, as the modes are passed (nearly) transparently to the open() builtin.

Could you look on zipfile patch Berker? It is simpler than tarfile patch.

LGTM. I left two minor comments on Rietveld. Sorry for the delay.
