    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?

In principle it should be possible to combine them.  It may be possible
to use some of the code of Dired, but tend to think it would be
a pain in the neck to use that code unchanged.
