forbidden chars on windows

                 Key: COMPRESS-120
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.0
         Environment: WindowsXP32bit
            Reporter: Helmut M.
            Priority: Minor

while uncompressing a tar archive, which includes files and directories containing special
characters like
private char[] forbiddenCharsWindows = new char[] { ':', '*', '?', '"', '<', '>', '|'
}; the name of the tarEntry is corrupt
and to create the directory or file is not possible. Exceptions occurs while creating them.
it would be better to replace them with '_'  instead to respond invalid entrynames.
