[R] zipped files as a data type

Hi all-

I have a lot of small (xml) data files that are saved by classification 
in directories named in accordance with the classification. I would like 
to zip up these directories and include the zipped file as part of the 
data in a package (which I know how to do.)

Are there R functions for dealing with zipped files as a data type?

Thanks for any suggestions.
