If you are referring to bug 3074 
then this is *not* what I have provided.  As you have 
said, there is an undocumented way to extract 
archives, given a directory.

The feature I have provided with patternsets is to let
the user specify the files that are to be 'extracted'
or 'listed' *from* the archive - not the archive files 
to be selected for unarchival.  This feature actually 
extends on what tar and jar already provide, albeit in a 
crude way (ie, with no real pattern matching):

tar xvf foo.tar
would extract, if present, from foo.tar

Hope this clears it up.
