Gentlemen,

Is there's any way this fix can be included in any version?
Currently, the fact that the exception is thrown makes extracting some zip files impossible with this library, and rolling your own is a bit painful. (either using a wrapper around 7zip to handle those or just provide cloned/patched versions for every major python version).

This ridiculous behavior is really not consistent with other ZIP implementations (7zip just ignores the mismatch).

Thank you for your time and effort.
