If you're lucky the person putting it into the ZIP will have encoded the
load/exec addresses in the special data in the file catalogue (if you open
the ZIP in a hex editor or similar, look for the 'ARC' signature).

On an Acorn, !SparkFS does this, and my unzip tool will also restore the
attributes for you
