If this was used instead for all these features, it'd be easier to swap out the zip library they use for something else

— You don't want to be locked into whatever PHP picked in the 90's

— Implementations may be good or bad, the design is good, that's why it's a top thing

— What if you want to use a newer standard?

— Node: just install it
PHP: can't

— Newer🤤 when it was implemented.. 2019 i suppose
