I'd rather have an extractall version which just throws a RuntimeError
than one which overwrites any file with any content on my filesystem if
I'm trying to unzip a zip file.  Then I at least know that I have to
write my own version. Adding a warning to the documentation instead of
fixing that bug was wrong for the tarfile module and is wrong for the
zipfile module. The "release process" disagrees with me here, but I'd
still call that wrong.
