Hi Stephan and Gildas,

I think a tool is a nice addition. Archives can be arbitrary complex and
nested so a tool would make perfect sense.
If this tools is working well and we know which features we need and how
they should be displayed to the user it more easy to move these kind of
functionality into the upload-box, without making the upload to
complicated and scare users :)

Just my 2cents,
Bjoern
