If you want to glean the need for quoting from the value of
archive-zip-extract (i.e. its car being "unzip"), I'm fine with that
as well.  But as your patch is written, it imposes that on any unzip
command, regardless of whether it was "unzip" or something else, like
p7zip, for example.  That doesn't seem right to me.

My "soon" is once a week.  You only waited 2 days. :-(
