Sounds like a reasonable proposal:  when I get to debugging the bundle op, I’ll
take a stab at this.

If someone else has spare cycles to get to this before I do, here are some
implementation hints:

In ABCL, SYS:ZIP is the interface for creating jar archives, which uses the zip
compression/packaging scheme.

An example of creating a jar archive can be [found in
