zipfile.BadZipFile thrown instead of openpyxl.utils.exceptions.InvalidFileException upon nonsense data

Issue #631 invalid

It seems like a bug that the zipfile.BadFileError is allowed to leak out when passing in nonsense data instead of throwing an InvalidFileException:

  File "<snip>/ve/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/openpyxl/reader/", line 118, in _validate_archive
    archive = ZipFile(f, 'r', ZIP_DEFLATED)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 770, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/", line 811, in _RealGetContents
    raise BadZipfile, "File is not a zip file"
zipfile.BadZipfile: File is not a zip file

Is this a bug or intended behaviour?
