Allow application-supplied archivers. This lets an application supply its own archivers, where they will work like any built-in archiver. This allows abstract directory interfaces the same way that PHYSFS_Io allows stream implementations. This is a work in progress still. The API is still changing, and will remain at version 0 until it is finalized (a theoretical future version 1 will be for when the final public interface changes, not when we evolve the initial API design).
