Something like this (or a stat() equivalent) would be good. I'm trying 
to remember if there was a good reason that this wasn't done before.

Yes...the current system annoys me really badly, so I'll be considering 
how to change that.

> 3) Plugin system for the archive handlers

This is planned.

> 4) Support for ISO images

That's...intriguing. I'll have to look at the ISO9660 spec and see how 
much work this would be, though.
