Is there a fuse-based wrapper for tarballs?
A little googling suggests there is but I didn't dig for details.

How useful would it be to make that work from gdb more easily?

E.g., "file tarfuse:myexec"

and then provide a way to register a handler for "tarfuse".

Or some such.
Just thinking out loud ...
