Curiosity is the very basis of education and if you tell me that 
curiosity killed the cat, I say only that the cat died nobly.

Infozip unzip expands its command line arguments itself (in particular
globbing). For example:
unzip -tq \*.zip
tests all zip files in the current directory.

NetBSD unzip does not support this special feature.
unzip -tq \*.zip
in a directory with zip files.
joerg said he'd fix it.
