I'm not sure what you mean with "exploading" but I guess you're looking
for src/archives.c and src/processarc.c in dpkg.

I don't know anything about stowfs (except a quick search on the internet
right now) but it's probably something that you want to deal at the dpkg
At least because I expect you will want to extract somewhere else than /

install on how to install it.
