The primary ones I'm interested in are content.xml and styles.xml
though images will be wanted for a full process, so I guess your selection
idea would meet the needs?

How reasonable is it to assume that a user knows the contents of the zip file?
Without such knowledge he/she is poking about with a stick in the dark?

In which case I'd suggest a list of 'required' files be presented for unzip.

That would leave relative path issues Norm?
Provide the full path within the zip?

But yes, that would meet my needs perfectly.
