The bonus patch looks okay, although I wonder if the directory slash (/) information should be in the RST rather than doc string. Usually the RST has all the details, and doc strings are just summaries.

Regarding exceptions, I can sympathise with both sides of the argument and don’t have a strong opinion (why does the exception type matter for programmer errors anyway?). But I think it might be better to be locally consistent within the zipfile module, and the module is already heavily documented with RuntimeError for similar programmer errors.
