* If for some reason, you only need your previously-registered archiver to
* live for a portion of your app's lifetime, you can remove it from the

* This fails if there are any archives still open that use this archiver.
* This function can also remove internally-supplied archivers, like .zip

* disabling support for them outright or overriding them with your own
* implementation. Once an internal archiver is disabled like this,
* PhysicsFS provides no mechanism to recover them, short of calling
* PHYSFS_deinit() and PHYSFS_init() again.
* PHYSFS_deinit() will automatically deregister all archivers, so you don't
