This issue is somewhat old, but I think either applying the patch attached earlier or noting this difference in behavior in the documentation would be ideal, as it can be quite difficult to debug shutil.unpack_archive silently skipping files. If the files you expect to unpack do contain '..' for non-malicious purposes this makes shutil.unpack_archive unsuitable for the situation.
