	A JAR file is a Zip file.  You can change .jar to .zip and load
it on up in WinZip, or any other zip program.  The manifest is placed in a
special directory in the zip file.  I actually mapped the .jar extension
to WinZip.  I just jar up all my package directories with source, and
Winzip allows me to easily do a wildcard delete on all *.java files :-)
