Thanks - I confirmed it works.

If serve-from-zip support is something you'd like to include
in stock libwebsockets that I'm happy to help with that.

Regardless an easier-to-use VFS layer would be good.

My immediate problem is that I use JUnZip, which I quickly
realized has major portability programs - it assumes both a
little-endian architecture and gcc __packed__ attributes.

So I have to decide to clean up junzip (compact, familiar)
or use some other library (probably contrib/minizip from zlib).
(The former is probably easier.)
