tarballs are currently not touched/supported at all by strip-nondeterminism.

I think it would be more consistent to also normalize UID/GID in zip files,
as this is some non-determinism (that should be stripped).
And strip-nondeterminism currently also normalizes permissions to 755/644,
which is a bit related to UID/GID.
