Oh, I must have missed that one. :O :)

The following code works perfectly for me, doing what you told you intended:

var IOService = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/network/io-service;1"]
var handler = IOService.getProtocolHandler("jar");
if (handler instanceof Components.interfaces.nsIJARProtocolHandler)
	var zrc = jph.JARCache;
	var nsIZipReader = zrc.getZip(<some nsIFile zipFile>);

But since it calls getZip, I'm still not sure if that will suffice.
Guess I'll have a dig into nsJar.cpp as soon as I have time... :)

I hope so. :)
nsIJARProtocolHandler looks very promising.
