No objection to adding a knob for this but do we need changes for 
reading too? I'm just concerned that someone could use ZipOutputStream 
to create a zip or JAR file that is not readable (in the same VM).

On the property name then we've started using jdk.* for JDK-specific 
properties. Also as the default is to support ZIP64 when writing then 
maybe this should have a disable* name so someone can specify on the command line without specifying a value.
