Same here.  Lotus released it as a freebie at one point, BTW.

I was always a big fan of Magellan.  I could not get along with a point 
and shoot file manager in my daily work.

On Linux (where I spend most of my time) Midnight Commander fills the 
bill.  Among a myriad of features, it has a really slick API for 
presenting various archive and disk image formats as a virtual filesystem. 
For example, you can select a zip or tar archive and hit enter to browse 
and operate on it as you would a regular directory tree.

Tieing in the toolshed utilities would be trivial, but with cocofuse 
available I've never seen the need.
