In that case, could anyone point me to an example of a Composite
Datatype which could accept as input an unknown number of files in an
unknown number of directories. I can't seem to understand how that would
work based on the wiki.
But maybe are we anticipating a near functionality of Galaxy. There were
talks about changing the way Galaxy handle zip files, is it still on the

If I'm not mistaking, Composite Datatypes allow for only one directory,
whereas we need to keep a constant directory structure with 2 or more
sub-directories containing our input files.
I'm not sure if that is true - the example of HTML output with images
comes to mind as a common use-case where subfolder(s) would be
expected. I've only had limited first hand experience with Galaxy's
composite datatypes myself though.
We have no way to change these tools behavior (obviously not Galaxy-friendly
;-) ) and therefore need to maintain this structure in the job working
Perhaps a tool wrapper could create a dummy folder using symlinks
(faster and less wasted disk than copying files), but that isn't ideal.
