I'm quite sure we discussed this point in Hamburg last year and this
year in Vienna.

As the spec says the fragments semantics are effectively unconstrained,
we should be allowed to do something that makes sense for us, and that
would not violate the spec.
I'm quite sure we said that we should use the fragments to define the
subfiles inside the archive. And that we could recurse if we encode the
"#" in it, to have a .zip in a .rar in an iso on a smb share.

I don't see anything bad in the proposed solution, tbh: It does not add
much overhead and the code is quite well documented.

With my kindest regards,
