It's a shame that unzip doesn't have that feature like unrar.  However, I
suggest you extract the contents of the zip files into a temp working
directory.  Scan the files within that directory for any compressed archives
and extract each into their own subdirectory matching the filename.  And
just recurse until no more compressed archives.  Then process whatever files
you need.  When done, just rm -fd <tmpworkdir>  (my unix/linux is limited.
Don't recall the parameters).  That way, clean up is a synch and you still
have the original file when there's something wrong during processing stages
like mismatch columns, duplicate entries, etc.
