?? if you will read %somedir/ it will give you block of files, or not? e.g.:
>> block: read %.
== [%public/ %rebl.exe %user.r %rebol.r %rebol.exe %browse-system.r %games/ %asko/ %obr.jpg %ppm.r %...

I don't understand what you want to achieve, sorry. You can't load .zip archive into block of files, although it would be great to be able to do so ... the same way as rebol loads gifanims into block of gifs .... -pekr-
