# [tex-live] zipping trees.

Hi,

have there been any plans yet of allowing zip files in a TeX tree,
basically treating them as subdirectories?

The central zip directory would more or less provide ls-R
functionality.  As long as one did not have too many zip files around
(basically one for every tree which one would otherwise create a ls-R
file for), the search times should be tolerable.
