Er, yeah, it turns out I had an obsolete manual page, for a version of
unzip long since deleted, lying around at the front end of my MANPATH.
I'd better do some housecleaning; it's that time of year anyway.

I see that the argument to -x is supposed to be a list of things
separated by spaces.  So this is probably better written

     (cd $TEXDIR; unzip -o -q $CDDIR/tpm/$f -x "$filters")

in case a later incarnation of the script wants to use this feature.
