So, after trying the pf_readdir:

zip & rar have a filter which only generates playlist and builds
uri for their access which creates streams from those uri.
filename is set from uri separator before creating streams.
I see double scheme problem here.

I thought the best option was to handle decompression in a stream
filter, now that's confusing.
Passing filename to the stream filter is another problem, as file access
will take the uri as is. (placing filename in fragment won't work).

Any reason why .so build is silently skipped unless rpath is set when
using the EXTRA syntax ?
