How to pack/zip Kindle (.mobi/azw3) files

I use EPUB Unzip and EPUB Zip to crack open .epub files and then, after tweaking the code, zipping them back into an .epub file. I have MobiUnpack for cracking open .mobi files. Is there something like EPUB Zip for zipping them back into .mobi files after tweaking the code, or do I simply use a zipping program?

Put the KF8/AZW3 into Calibre and use the Tweak Books feature to get at the code. Then it can be put back together after that.

I found Tweak Books in Calibre. Neat.
