I would think that something along the lines of how classpaths work in
Java would be the right direction -- ie, PLTCOLLECTS could include
files (perhaps with a distinguished extension) in addition to
directories, and those would be ZIP files whose internal directory
structure was treated the way a directory entry directly in
PLTCOLLECTS is treated.
