Gimme Some Folder Action

In OSX, say you have a folder that is often populated with subfolders containing RAR archives spanning multiple files named either in a format like filename.rar, filename.r00, ... filename.r10 or filename01.rar, filename02.rar, .. filename10.rar. How would you create a folder action, be it mostly Automator, Shell or Actionscript or any other tool based, that would automatically extract the contents of these archives once (and only once) when they are added?
