I don't think it makes sense to go that far,
we just need to cover all useful cases, 
as I think there are not that many of them.

Apart from your case + the one's we already have,
I can't think of another one. :-)

UNPACK only works on child context-infos from the look of it.  Else, the isNested() check stops it on the root without doing anything if you point it at the root deployed archive, not a nested archive.
Yes, unpack is only meant for nested jars.

We already had this dev discussion,
and afaik Scott had some good arguments.

In the worst case you can do this:

See hasBeenModified.
