Yes, that's what I was using. Turns out I didn't look closely enough at
the exception I was getting. What i thought was zipfile complaining
about a '/' character was really Python complaining about a bad string
formatting string I was using!
Thanks for confirming that zipfile indeed should work the way I hoped it
