Obviously working implementation > perfect theoretical, but I'm confused
by your insistence on a single file without abstraction. Even an
uncompressed tarball can be cat'ed to read the contents, without
requiring a custom format. With a custom format, why not hide
implementation details like source format in "unfold"?

For the DefaultCollection example, don't we have a standardised download
tool in debian/watch? Similarly, the build script is essentially a
debian/rules in its construction. Could you get by with a `cat
debian/{watch,control,rules}`?
