Indexing .zip archives is problematic because each .zip may contain many
files. There is currently no SWISH::Filter Perl module for .zip archives
because the assumption of the SWISH::Filter API is one file == one document.
If a .zip contained, for example, a .html, a .xml, a .pdf and a .doc
file, each one would have to be filtered too.
There are some TODO markers in the SWISH::Filters::Decompress module.
Note the LIMITATIONS section.
If anyone on the list has successfully indexed .zip files and/or would
like to contribute code to the Decompress filter, I'd be happy to offer
