I'd forgotten about tar, that's another one to handle... :)

I was thinking recursive could mean different things. For zip files, tar 
files etc, it would probably just mean root directory vs descend into all 
directories. For OLE2, it would mean checking embeded documents of embeded 
documents (normally but not always by means of descending into child 
directories). Maybe there's a clearer name for this sort of thing?
