Adding a folder to a zip archive

Hi Trevor,
Yes, I'm thinking that would be one way to go.

The zipping part of this happens during my automated release process so I
guess another alternative is to simply do the zipping manually using the
OSX built in Compress function.  That would break the automation but I
would end up with a zip archive with the correct contents for installation.

I haven't checked, but I assume there must be an enhancement request at the
QCC for this?  Seems like a pretty major omission.
