Hmm, do you mean that *you* don't speak about de-archivers?
[ This is the first time I hear about this in 6 years ].
dearchiver 391 hits
de-archiver 1660 hits
unarchiver 1240 hits
un-archiver 1500 hits
This is biased of course, since I'm sure many of the hits come from
the unzip package itself. Perhaps we should ask in debian-l10n-english.
