[galaxy-dev] Possible to define a datatype corresponding to a directory?

I have just downloaded galaxy, got up and running with a local
installation. I'd like to have a crack at integrating some of our tools
into the system.
To start off with, we use a data format that is actually a directory
containing multiple (variable number of) files and subdirectories. Is it
possible to define a datatype that treats this directory as a single
object in terms of using it as tool inputs and outputs?
It seems like I could define a datatype corresponding to a zipped
version of the directory (and this would be useful for uploading), but
once it's uploaded I don't want the tools to be packing and unpacking
zipfiles all the time.
