The handlers I put up on gist should give you most, if not all, the
functionality you need. They do just what the OS X compress feature would
do.

I use ZIP for file formats in my applications. Whenever I need to
distribute a folder of files (e.g. templates) then I use revZip with those
handlers I linked to and change the extension to one of my choosing.
