It's misleading because for a well established Unix practice I expect 
that informations on the file content are inside the file itself and not 
in the name. So I do expect that if a command fails because of the file 
name (like gunzip does) it tell me explicetely.

There is no documentation on qmrestore man page that there is a naming 
convention tha you must respect on the archive name. Nor that you need 
to use an uncompressed file when using standard input.
