This path just adds the "--keep" option to keep original files unchanged.
The patch is very simple and I have tried it here (manpage and binary) and
it seems to work just fine.

I tried to respect the coding style (it is a very small patch, so hopefully
I did) and the commit format. But I wasn't sure how the commit format for
this patch should be. So please let me know which changes should I do.

This patch has the following problem: it still refuses to zip a file with
multiple links for no reason (the original file is unaffected).

Wow, this patch was sent (and applied) ~8 years ago already. Congrats for finding the thread :D

Can you please explain why, if the original file is not affected, this patch is related? The patch just makes sure the original files are unchanged, as the topic says, and that is working as far as I understand.

Also, can you please provide specific steps to reproduce?
