Then in the meantime you will have to resort to generating the list of
XML tags for each file. That is, until we find a way to express this

I just commited my patches to implement this in CVS. The description of
the tags is almost identical, except that :
- it is 'process' and not 'uncompress' (more generic in my mind)
- 'process' can substitute %s twice if needed (and not once)

You should be able to use this construct with a group of files, even in
subdirectories. It won't work from within plugins. I had to clean up a
few things in the copy code to implement this, so things should be
better overall ;)

This is completely untested at the moment. I eagerly await feedback. The
changes are simple and localized enough that it should be easy to
maintain anyway (everything is done in copy.c/copy_file()).
