 So... I would argue that this might be a valid ticket nonetheless. When
 extracting the folder "wordpress-[version].zip", I also expect the
 resulting folder to be "wordpress-4.7". As many of us tend to downloads
 WordPress multiple times through the years and have a single "Downloads"
 folder, this tends to get clotted. For instance, when I need to test
 something with a previous version of WordPress, I always download it again
 — just to be sure.

 Even without these reasons: in my opinion, it makes sense that an archive
 called "wordpress-4.7.zip" extracts to "wordpress-4.7". I'm interested in
 hearing more opinions on this. The only related topic on this I could find
 is https://wordpress.org/ideas/topic/remove-wordpress-folder-inside-zip-
