#44863 new feature request

Modify the WordPress importer to handle .zip as well as .xml files

Description

Wordpress.com exports sites in two ways, as a .zip file (full of XML files) or as a single XML file, depending on whether the export is done from Calypso or wp-admin.

The importer is expecting a single XML file, and fails if the user tries to import the zip file.

Suggestion: Modify the importer to accept the .zip file, unzip it into tmp, and then import each of the included XML files.
