By the way, I keep finding myself suprised that I don't notice that I'm
using bsdtar instead of gtar. It works so well as a transparent
replacement for gtar (that my fingers know the args/switches/etc) that
I keep forgetting that I'm using it. I only notice when I read a help
message or the man page.

Great job!
