With the "out of the box" recipes.  I haven't actually gotten OpenSSL
to compile yet ;)

Files\Subversion\bin;C:\Program Files\Git\cmd;C:\Program

I also tried putting ruby_mingw\bin folder to the front of the path,
and that didn't help.

7zip can open them ok, and Winzip too.  I was thinking about writing a
new extract method using 7zip (7z.exe), but that would be a dependency
(required to be installed and required to be in path).  I guess before
I even think about that, I should worry about getting OpenSSL
compiled, and working ;)
