      Description

      The current API is a little awkward when dealing with symlinks (e.g., those created using Info-Zip's "zip -y").

      I propose the following three methods for ZipArchiveEntry:

      public boolean isUnixSymlink()
      
      public String getUnixSymlink(ZipFile zf)
      
      public String getUnixSymlink(ZipFile zf, String pathCharset)
