Thanks for the best compressor/decompressor I've used so far. :)

A previous program had a feature I quite liked - when decompressing a file which resulted in a single compressed file it would continue and decompress that file too ... Very useful for tarballs.

Just a thought for a future version ...

It was implemented in 0.1.X versions, but not since 1.0.X.

I have the idea to implement it again, since it's not there cause a matter of time to code it... But count on it.

+1. This is especially useful for 7z. The 7z format does not preserve file permissions (e.g., execute permission for a shell/pyhton script), so I see a lot of foo.tar.7z analogous to tgz or tar.gz. It would be great if I did not have to 7z extract, then double-click again on the .tar to extract that file.
