That suggests that the operation is simply loading the file instead of
performing an in-memory unzip, locating the correct information, and then
putting that into the frame. "PK" are the first two characters in any ODF
text document (because ODF is actually a zipped container, and zip files
begin with "PK").

Yes, there does.
