[SLUG] Mounting a zip file?

<crazy crack idea>

Is it possible to mount a zip/gzip/bzip file as part of the filesystem,
so it gets decompressed on the fly and only when needed? Similar 
to mounting an iso from a file I guess.
I have a 20Meg docs folder which I don't always need, and it inflates 
to >100Meg, wasting a lot of space on the laptops' drive.

Also, anyone know where you can get a decent Linux-related mousepad.
Everythinglinux has a couple, but none I like.  Gotta be optical 
mouse friendly. ( Little hint, Optical mice track badly on a shiny 
black desk.)
