Zip-O-Matic Possible Usability Enhancement

If you start Zip-O-Matic as a Tracker add-on and then drag some files onto it, it will create the zip in the same folder the files you drag are in. If you drag files from a query though, you don't necessarily have that "source" folder open, neither do the files necessarily come from the same folder at all. It would be nice if there was a way for the output zip to be more visible. Three possible changes we came up with:
1) It could open the target folder when zipping completes (like expander does in the opposite case)
2) It could provide a draggable icon in it's window that represents the resulting zip file
3) It could always create the zip in the directory where-from the add-on was invoked
The third option would make it a bit easier to grasp the behaviour. It would make it easy to specify the target directory just by invoking the add-on from there.
