100 chars is the POSIX limit. There is various ways to get around this
limit - we tar up using GNU tar because it is the most standard. Download
GNU tar and you should be able to access the contents. If someone where to
implement the SUN Tar packing version to go above 100 chars then we could
release multiple versions of tgz files.
