Unzips a specified ZIP file to a location on the filesystem via the WordPress Filesystem Abstraction.Assumes that WP_Filesystem() has already been called and set up. Does not extract a root-level __MACOSX directory, if present. Attempts to increase the PHP memory limit to 256M before uncompressing. However, the most memory required shouldn't be much larger than the archive itself.
