#991: Make savez able to write ZIP64 files
 Reporter:  phillies   |       Owner:  somebody
     Type:  defect     |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal     |   Milestone:  1.1.2   
Component:  numpy.lib  |     Version:  none    
 Severity:  normal     |    Keywords:          
 When you try to write a zip file larger than 4 GB with numpy's savez you
 get an exception saying that you should enable ZIP64 extensions.
 I did not find any way (without altering the numpy code manually and
 reinstalling numpy) to make this possible. From my point of view, this is
 a severe usability bug - as I can not use savez anymore.

 Please add a function, e.g. savez64(...) which uses ZIP64 by default or a
 function enableZip64(bool) which can turn ZIP64 on or off.
