      Description

      We currently ship src.zip file in the J2SE release. If a developer wants to
      inherit documentation from it, they must first unzip it, which enlarges
      it from 9.1MB to 37.5MB and takes several minutes to unzip. This is necessary
      because javadoc can only handle .java files, not .zip files.

      It would be preferable to allow the source file to remain zipped and
      simply allow javadoc to process the source files in the zip file.

      Might consider other formats as well, such as .jar, .tar, .gzip, .z, etc.
