  The filename is in the HTTP encoding, which is correct.  The file
names of the members in the zip file is not standarized; from Europe,
should be latin-1 (need to check what project saving actual does).  If
it is from Japan, it would be ShiftJIS.  So, basically we shouldn't
use the member names.

  The content in the manifest file is UTF-8.
