Is there a way to teach Git to take advantage of this when storing,
diff-ing and merging these files?

you should be able to use clean/smudge to have git store the files
uncompressed, which will help a lot.

Having looked at that, I'm not sure if this really helps:

As I understand, the smudge command is run on checkout to convert the
blob in the repository to the format that is desired in the working
tree. But this is the opposite of what I need: on checkout, I need to
convert the text data in the repository to a blob in the working tree.

Furthermore, I need to convert multiple text files into one blob, will
smudge/clean seem to do just 1:1 conversions.

Am I missing something? Are there any other options?

so the smudge command would zip the file and the clean command would unzip the file (assuming it's a single file, if the zip is multiple files, you will have to add something to combine them)

you want the working tree to have a zip file and the repository to have text.
