Based on the ZIP spec (I'm using the one here:
http://www.pkware.com/documents/casestudies/APPNOTE.TXT), I'm inclined
to agree. There's a general note that says "All fields unless otherwise
noted are unsigned and stored in Intel low-byte:high-byte,
low-word:high-word order." I can't find any explicit mention of any
fields that should be signed.

Since I find myself poking around in the ZIP file format today, I may
try changing all the format strings to unsigned, and writing up some
tests to check cases that can be run in a reasonable amount of time.  If
I get anything usable I'll post a patch.
