Using 'unzip -c' as separate / additional `textconv` filter for diff
generation allows to separate the problem of deltifiable storage format
from textual representation for diff-ing.

Though best results could be had with `diff` and `merge` drivers...

can you point at an example of how to do this? when I went looking about a year ago to deal with single-line json data I wasn't able to find anything good. I ended up using clean/smudge to pretty-print the json so it was easier to handle.
