Tar cannot be used to extract zip files. It can, however, be used to
extract tar archives *compressed with zip command*, provided that
certain conditions are met (see below).

This command can succeed only if:

1) /tmp/${lang_file} is a valid tar archive compressed with zip
2) It (zip file, not the archive) contains only one entry. In other
words, "unzip -l /tmp/${lang_file} | tail -n 1" shows something like:

   522240                     1 file
