Sounds like a good opportunity for Chris at Altuit to craft an external.

If the format isn't important but you just need to work with multiple 
files, you can store gzip-compressed data in custom properties in a 
stack file, using that stack file as the carrier.  If you take the time 
to store the type and creator codes obtained from "the detailed files" 
on Mac you can even restore those when you write them out again -- 
something the Zip format doesn't handle at all.
