Ok, not requireing a name makes things simpler. However, if the zip
file contains many TTF files that match, which do you choose? A
reasonable answer may be "the first". But, does it make sense to talk
about "first" in zip archives? When unzipped, the ordering is most
likely forgotten. 

We could also leave it undefined -- it's an unlikely problem in real
