Zip as an internal container layer in Producer File Structure

We have a requirement to create a routing channel template which would first pgp decrypt a file and then unzip it.
The zip file can contain multiple files.
This is not supported in SFG. The limitation is if a zip file contains multiple files, then zip file layer should be the first one in the producer file structure.

    I tried to think of a way around this issue.  The easiest method was to use three trading partners.

    1. This trading partner receives the *.zip.pgp file.  It routes the file to trading partner #2, decrypting the file.
    2. This trading partner receives the *.zip file.  It then routes the file to trading partner #3, unzipping the multiple files in the process.
    3. Receives the unzipped files and depending on the protocol, sends the files to their final destinations.

    This is not ideal, but until IBM fixes the issue, it works.
