Well, take a look at (used to be called
podfuk) and probably avfs.

We are doing things like tarfs using CODA and userspace servers --
that has big advantages on not crashing machines, plus being portable
(currently Linux and Solaris). [Do not try podfuk on latest kernels:
something went wrong. 2.4.0-test5 should be okay].

Here's example session:

pavel@Elf:/$ cd "/tmp/unarj241a.tar.gz#utar/unarj241a"/
pavel@Elf:/tmp/unarj241a.tar.gz#utar/unarj241a$ ls
Makefile os2unarj.mak tccunarj.mak unarj.doc
Makefile.orig patch241a technote.doc unarj.exe
decode.c qclunarj.mak unarj.c unarj.h
environ.c readme.doc unarj.def unarj.h.orig
pavel@Elf:/tmp/unarj241a.tar.gz#utar/unarj241a$ cd /tmp
pavel@Elf:/tmp$ head mc.diff.gz#ugz
