If and Only If there are no "-kb"'s, then there is one other easy option with
the zip included with most Linux Distro's these days:

"-l   convert LF to CR LF (-ll CR LF to LF)"
use `xzip -l [other options]` to create the zips for the windows people and
`-ll` to receive zips from them.

If you have binaries you could build a script that does the `-l
TextFileList` on known text files and then `-u BinaryFileList` (I
think) to add the binaries to the zip file.
