Someone already came up with this idea. It is actually quite nice, but the problem is that POSIX only specifies one reserved character, '/', and thus foo.tar.bz2:as_dir is a valid name. So such a file could exist.

btw, ':' is not a practical separator. I have several files (I did not create) on my disk containing ':' in the name.
