Unzipper lens for unity

So I asked reddit what kind of lens they’d want to see in Unity, and to my surprise, their top answer was: “I’d like to see a lens that shows the contents of an archive without having to unzip it”.  I guess this makes sense if you want to verify the archive’s contents without having to extract it (to be sure there’s no iffy bits in there), and so I decided to take it on.  What I came up with was a non-visible lens that shows the archive’s contents (without unzipping it!)  if you type in the exact path of a .tar, .tar.gz, .tgz, or .zip on the home lens in the dash.

Now I’m not sure how many people this would be useful for, but if it’s something you’d be interested in, I built it in my ppa (not quite sure it’s ready for the scopes-packagers ppa).
