use of other uncompressed other than Stuffit

I expand a lot of rar archives and prefer not to use Stuffit for these.
Apart from its useless progress indicator (only shows progress of first .rar file) it also does not recover from some errors that may be present.
In the finder I just set the file type to use what I want (usually Unarchiver or UnRarX) but pathfinder ignores this setting.
Can we have a preference to not do this?

    Go to Preferences > Features > Compression and disable the option to decompress archives with Path Finder.
