I have to admit to having stopped using WebFTP or FTP. I exclusively use SFTP with WinSCP as my client. It is a windows desktop app and will let you unzip any file in the remote filesystem as a simple context menu option.
I know this doesn't answer your question but it is an alternative. I apologize but I have this thing against using FTP because passwords are passed in the clear.
