Detect invalid ZIP password

Provide a simple method to detect that a password for a ZIP file is not valid.

The current implemention usually throws an exception (which does not definitively identify the password as wrong), but not always. Sometimes it just returns corrupt data.

It would be nice to  either have a typed exception consistently thrown, or a method to specifically check for an invalid password.
