The ZipFile documentation says:

> If allowZip64 is True (the default) zipfile will create ZIP files that
> use the ZIP64 extensions when the zipfile is larger than 2 GiB. If it
> is false zipfile will raise an exception when the ZIP file would
> require ZIP64 extensions.

ZipFile.close() will write ZIP64 central directory records if e.g. a member's local file header starts at an offset > 2 GB, or if there are more than 65535 files in the archive.  It will do this even if allowZip64 is False, whereas the documentation implies that it should raise an exception in that case.
