This is a losing strategy, since users are going to find a way to get into
that zipfile, password or not.
Generally, end users don't tinker with data, but it's convenient to put it
in an archive anyhow. Those that want to tinker are going to do so.
(and even though there's no password support, PhysicsFS gives you a
general 'pak file' approach: http://icculus.org/physfs/ )
