Question: Does anything at all still use .pak files?

Does anybody know of any non-dead Source-related game or mod that still uses files that end in .pak for distributing content? You know, like PAK0.pak, etc.

I'm trying to figure out how important it is for PackBSP to support them going forward, as opposed to, say, GCF or NCF archives.

Portal 2 uses them. Alien Swarm might have, but I don't have it installed

I'm pretty certain Portal 2 or Alien Swam don't use .pak, as windows search brings up nothing of the sort.

I took non-dead as non-left4dead, then all my confusion came from there. oops.

No Source engine game ever used PAK files.
