Not quite dependent enough

I needed to unzip a .zip file on my Debian box this evening. Its a fairly bare bones set up at the moment so I knew I would have to install a package. I went ahead and did;

# apt-get install zip

And sure enough everything worked. But this didn't install 'unzip'. Bugger. Now call me old fashioned but does it not make sense to put both utilities in one package rather than make me install two. Definitely one for mpt.
