Except GNUstep doesn't run on VMS. And if for example, you're also talking about resource forks, .zip files don't preserve resource forks, so you're back at square one. There is a tar like program (think it's called xar or something similar) which does preserve resource forks. Just a thought.

The main point though is that you can embed whatever header you deem interesting in the zip, and more importantly, you have direct access to the catalog.
