I don't think this is quite right, but I will admit that it is
somewhat more complicated than I initially thought it would be, partly
because of the way unpack is currently written, and partly because for
compatibility, we have to handle things like

  gunzip ("foo")

when the file is actually "foo.tar" or "foo.tar.gz" or "foo.tgz", etc.

How about we move this to the maintainers list?
