Not to sidetrack you but there are excellent free extractor programs
for windows. 7zip is a very promissing one. Handles zip, tar, gzip,
bzip2. It also has its own format .7z which offers the best
compression anywhere. Also its zip files are smaller than pkzip zip

Of course emacs can handle compressed files, all you have to do is
enable the feature. Info on this is in the emacs manual under
compresssed files heading in the file handling section.

However this requires external programs. I think the windows version
expects pkunzip in the path. I am almost certain that info-zip (the
free software zip) should be a drop in replacement, as info-zip is
what is used in GNU/Linux.
