I'm experimentally using GnomeVFS within Conglomerate
(  It's very much a hack at the moment, so I don't
really support the case where you start having entities from xml files
that are siblings within a tarball archive.  But this could be
implemented.  If it is, we probably ought to share this code between
mlview and conglomerate.

Another possibility for tarballs is to use libgsf (see GNOME CVS).  
Jody Goldberg recommended this approach to me at GUADEC, but I haven't looked 
into properly yet.
