Get rid of unpacking arcives to temporary directory

I have 3 storage devices on my system. A is for OS, B and C are for storage. If I have a very large(1GB+) archive that resides on C and try to extract it to a directory on B, it takes unnecessarily long. I believe this is because mc extracts to /tmp on A first and then copies to B.

This extra unneeded step causes the process to take twice as long which is a big deal when dealing with large archives. Also, it requires that A have enough space to hold the contents of the archive before copying.

Now, I'm sure there is some crazy reason for extracting to /tmp that I'm not aware of, but please, give us an option to not use /tmp. Even if it's a somewhat hidden option.

Any progress on this one? From the description it seems rather trivial - could you describe what's blocking it?
