That option is effectively redundant now. Whether or not to do 
encoding-conversion is checked for each item, each time a filelist is 
constructed, instead of just at start of session.

The repack command (for a zip) is essentially just:
 "zip -r <path of source archive> ."

From the zip documentation, I see that for this command, renamed (hence 
missing) items will not be deleted from the archive. There's a zip option 
-FS/--filesync which might help, but I'll need to review  where the unpack and 
repack commands are run from, or else this option may not work.
