I knew about archive mode already, but there are some major issues
with this approach.
1- It does not deal with password protected zip files.
2- It does not treat the zipfile like a filesystem, so other tools
don't work well with it. My thinking was more along tramp vfs lines
3- tramp URI's work better when referring to a file inside an archive
somewhere, especially on a remote server. could not confirm how to do
this in archive-mode.
