Unfortunate. Hopefully that will be changed soon. Zip is a common
foundation for many compound document types.

I used to do that, but ever since the IDE introduced the limitation
about stack name conflicts, and the ongoing confusion about what is and
isn't in memory stemming from the lack of a purge command, I've since
migrated to using LSON (encoded arrays) as the LC-native solution for
LSON offers pretty much all the benefits of property sets in stack
files, but with all the predictable ease of working with any data stored
in an array variable.
Of course the one thing stack files are better at than anything else is
when you need to store LC controls. Many alternatives, none as compact
