dh_strip_nondeterminism does the following:
* Sets the timestamp of every Zip entry to January 1, 1980 (the
earliest date that can be represented in a Zip archive).
* Lexicographically sorts the Zip entries by filename, while keeping
META-INF/ and META-INF/MANIFEST.MF at the beginning.
* Removes the timestamp comment from Javadoc-generated .html files
in the Jar file.
