If you open zip:/dir/!/content.xml

  oldpath:  zip:/dir/!/content.xml
->basepath: zip:/dir/!/
->newpath: zip:/dir/!/content.dtd

I've been watching from the sidelines, and may be missing something significant, but why do you need the marker (!) at all?
_If_ you're willing to make the module act a bit like a `zip server'
(analogous to http server), and have it traverse the directory components
from the top: when it encounters a zip file instead of a directory, then it knows (analogous to finding a cgi somewhere within the url).

OTOH, this would _not_ extend well to the case of getting the zip from
http, ftp, whatever!  So forget this suggestion if you're going that
direction!! :>
