Well, without unzip,  vfu is unable to read a zip  file. Without tar and
gzip, it is not  able to read a tar.gz. If you  look at wrappers in rx/,
you see that they use tar, unzip, etc.

Moreover, those  wrappers are some security issue.  They use predictable
name in  a world writable directory  (/tmp/XXXXXX.rx.cache). They should
use mktemp based filename instead.
