decompressor script for using tar, unrar, unzip, unace...

...with a single cml interface.
Do something like that exists?
If not, would you be interested if I'd work on it?

courtesy of rezza from .bashrc:

extract () {
   if [ -f $1 ] ; then
      case $1 in
         *.tar.bz2)   tar xjf $1      ;;
         *.tar.gz)   tar xzf $1      ;;
         *.bz2)      bunzip2 $1      ;;
         *.rar)      rar x $1      ;;
         *.gz)      gunzip $1      ;;
         *.tar)      tar xf $1      ;;
         *.tbz2)      tar xjf $1      ;;
         *.tgz)      tar xzf $1      ;;
         *.zip)      unzip $1      ;;
         *.Z)      uncompress $1   ;;
         *)         echo "'$1' cannot be extracted via extract()" ;;
      esac
   else
      echo "'$1' is not a valid file"
   fi
