Hot-backup.py won't create zipfiles bigger than 2GB

When I create a backup of a rather large repo (output ZIP over 2GB), hot-backup blows up with this error message:
Archiving backup to 'd:\SubVersion\Backups\bin\bin-14671.zip'...
I can make it work by passing an extra parameter to the ZipFile constructor to enable ZIP64 mode -- is turning on ZIP64 something that could be made an option in hot-backup? Google turns up a few scattered reports of this problem, so I can't be the only one trying to zip up large repository backups.
