In fact it is a zip file, yes.
Funnily the PlayBook emulator isn't even that kind of diva as bbwp - in terms of accepted compressed files.
I directly opened my .bar with "File Roller" (w/o renaming it to .zip first) and put the missing folder into the /air/ subdirectory.

Was there any side effect of adding the extra files to the .bar file without adding them to the META-INF\MANIFEST.MF? The manifest contains the SHA-512 digests, so I would have thought some sort of vaildation might happen. I haven't seen anything on the simulator, but I haven't tried to sign it or know what the real device might do differently?
