> The tar implementation does not currently support Pax extended or global headers; they
are treated as normal files.
> See for details.
> Pax headers have a different linkType (typeflag) of 'g' or 'x', so can easily be detected.
> It would be quite a bit of work to process all the possible headers, so perhaps it would
be worth providing an initial implementation that just ignores them?
> This should probably be an optional setting.
