I think this is leaning towards my thinking as well: I'd be more interested
in a library that forms a generic interface to any hierarchical structured
file (tar, zip, compound files, etc), than a library that just did one
particular format.

ie a common interface with "pluggable" back-ends for various formats.
Would that be possible?

That would seem more "Boost-ish" to me.
