[Haskell-cafe] Working with remote HTTP file as ZIP archive

I want %subj%.

Is it possible with lazy evaluation and any existing Haskell libraries do:

1) open remote file via HTTP, read random pieces of it but not to
download the whole file? HTTP standard supporting partial reads...

2) open remote file via HTTP as ZIP archive, get list of files, get
specific file (whole) or get part of specific file, but again, using lazy eval,
not to fetch all stuff.

So is it possible?

Thanks in advance!
