I don't think a hand squeezing a mouse has anything to do with archive
management + I don't like the idea of having a human hand in the icon.
It's very hard to make it look good in low resolutions since the hand
definately needs another object. Only a hand doesn't have anything to do
with squeeze.

And I wouldn't use the clamp. There are already at least winzip,
powerarchiver, xarchiver and there might be more archive managers that
have a clamp in their logo. Squeeze should have an original logo and not
just yet another clamp.
