digitalmars.D.learn - anything that would provide support for zip filesystem?

In my work we have to access a big zip file with a lot of little xml files in it to look up various target specific attributes for a wide variety of targets. Basically the zip file it is a zipped up directory hierarchy of zip files, and in processing it the hierarchy has meaning. I see in the D library reference that we have the start of some zip processing, and we also have some url support in std.net.curl, but is there anything provided that allows you to access files in a zip archive by url? This description of java zipfilesystemprovider looks like it provides a solution. http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/io/fsp/zipfilesystemprovider.html While writing this I was also thinking about D imports, and would it be useful feature if D could import modules using a zip url.
