you should be able to work around that by using 2 git-archive one to
archive mimetype and another one to 'update' the zip with the rest,
hopefully mimetype would still be in front.
otehr wise you'd have to write your own git-archive, which should not
be _that_ hard... If you serach in teh git history of git, I'm pretty
sure at some point that was implemented as a shell script....
