Public bug report changed:

Well, I have six good reasons. I know it depends on you if you find them
good, too.

First reason is that I got used to it under another distribution. Second
reason is, that copying single files from an archive is a lot simpler
that way, because ark always has bad drag-and-drop problems (on any
distribution I know). Third reason is, that I have a lot of web-page
archives in tar.bz2 format and I love to just click it and open
index.html and view the pages as if they were not compressed. Fourth
reason is that the kio plugin starts listing the contents a lot of
faster. Fifth reason is that I don't need a new window to be opened. And
sixth reason is that I think that every behaviour should be
configurable. That's the fun in linux to choose the way you can use it.

I don't have a problem being the actual way the default. But I want to
be able to change it. Can I do that (I didn't find out how)? If it's not
changeable then this would be a wish instead a bug, that this default
should be configurable somehow.

Thanks for your fast feedback!
