    Whenever I double-click on .tar.gz files, BOMArchiveHelper expands them, but leaves behind an intermediate .tar file. Is there any way to alter this behaviour and have it delete the tar file? Kind of like.. "tar xzf" behaviour.

    Use Terminal and 'tar xzvf'... ;)

    ...or you could try renaming the files to .tgz before using BOMArchiveHelper... that usually prevents the .tar file from "appearing"... :)
