I'm very sorry for the late response on this matter.

Currently Emacs doesn't know how to decode file names in an
archive file.  We need a work very similary to what done in
dired mode for filename handling.  Tar-mode as well.

Considering the tasks of those modes, I think all of them
can be merged into one mode.  All of them must handle files
collected by some way (directory, tar, zip, etc) and each
way allows nesting.  Perhaps merging into the dired-mode is
the best because it is natural to treat an archive file as a
directory, and it seems that dired-mode provides most
powerful features.

Then, the current filename problem can be solved just in one

Is it over-ambitious?
