The zipfile module is prominently documented as "This module does not currently handle...ZIP files which have appended comments".  But as far as I can tell, it handles them fine - there's even a "comment" property on the ZipFile object that you can set to modify the comment.

I attach a simple doc patch that removes the apparently out-of-date information.
