Good point.  One potential pitfall would be that the work directory
might be left in that state if an error occurs during the extraction
or fix-up such that the work directory is not restored to
{group,world}-searchable.  Is that acceptable?

Is this the preferred solution?  Would someone like to implement the
change?  If not, I could implement it, but I don't want to spend time
doing it if someone else is going to do it or if it's not really the
preferred solution.
