Subject: No built-in method to recursively add a directory contents

Very commonly, one needs to add a directory structure and its contents recursively to a zip archive. This is easily done in Unix's zip command-line tool, using its -r option. Archive::Zip does not seem to have this capability. It looks like you'd have to use addDirectory() to add an empty directory, and then write your own recursion.

There is `addTree' for adding directory trees. No need to recurse with `addDirectory'. -- The difference makes the difference
