Hm. mc does put things into /tmp as does debdiff, but the latter
at least honours TMPDIR (and --no-unpack-tarballs).

But in the very most cases, I *do* want them to be extracted in
/tmp as they “usually” fit. So I’d rather have a heuristic put
into the file manager whether to set TMPDIR before calling the
extraction utility (or which tmpdir to use if it designates the
extraction place by itself). mc maintainers, are you listening?
