I've actually added this now to file-roller.  If people want to try it out, you just need file-roller and nautilus from HEAD.  It does add a global menu item, "Add To Archive...", so maybe I am the first offender of cracking out the menu :)

The file-roller context menu component is pretty cheesy since it just spawns a file-roller process (exactly the same thing the scripts did), but it is a good general example of how other people can go about adding this feature to their apps.  Also, there is a doc in nautilus/docs/nautilus-context-menus.txt that people can look at as well.
