So I suspect that 'split' isn't what the OP wants.

Many years ago I wanted to get something similar for other archives and
somebody already has written a script, but I don't remember the link

However, if you should write a script, consider to post it at
http://pastebin.com/ or similar and to post the link here, since it
might be useful for pother users too.
