I was using zip generically. But I think pkzip aka winzip aka not-gzip
only accepts ascii filenames.
I still think you're better off using some sort of encrypted filesystem.
You can't get public key encryption, but you can setup two-factor
encryption, where someone can't login unless they have both a passphrase
and a key-file or smart-card or something like that that has been
authorized by the admin.
