Data Source within ZIP file

It would be great to be able to connect to data files which are stored in container files such as a ZIP or a TAR, particularly for CSV, without having to unzip them. This would even more useful where the data is coming from a websource and being able to load selected files over the internet!

 

My case study is a public dataset which is sent via a PHP script http://www.hesa.ac.uk/unistats_file.php but is a ZIP of many CSV files, most of which I want to connect to. Even better is if the ZIP could be treated as a database so I can join the CSV files together!
