Cannot select a bundle as an existing repository

My wife uses Everweb for doing her business' website. It stores its "project files" in bundles under ~/Library/Application Support/Everweb, in bundles that are named like '0CA26748798E4FAD9DDA84BC6DF46561.everweb". I had created a mercurial repository at the root of 2 of these bundles. On the CLI the 'hg' command doesn't mind this at all, and Altassian Source Tree lets me pick these bundles as existing repositories. But in MacHg 1.0.2, when I do a "Manage a repository" or "File->Open", and navigate to the "~/Library/Application Support/Everweb" directory, the Open File dialog has the bundles grayed out so I cannot select one or even pick it as a target to enter. If I do a cmd-shift-g to force the dialog to be within the bundle, I still cannot select "." as the target.

Is this a bug? Or what am I missing? Seems like something in MacHg thinks that bundles are different than directories. For this use case, they should be treated the same.
