Ah, gotta love Google: http://www.kyz.uklinux.net/cabextract.php
I recall I tried it last time we had this discussion, and the cab format
isn't too pleasant, a hierarchy will be extracted into a single

caused by this piece of software.
And doesn't the TCO browser support cab extraction? Maybe some
