Create common POSIXArchiveEntry for use with tar/cpio/dump
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COMPRESS-136
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-136
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Archivers
            Reporter: Bear Giles
            Priority: Minor


There's currently a top-level ArchiveEntry but many archivers are for POSIX (or POSIX-like)
filesystems with standard attributes - ownership, permissions, access times, etc. By creating
a common ArchiveEntry class for these attributes it will be much easier to write archive-agnostic
extraction software. (Many of the existing methods should be marked 'deprecated' but left
in place indefinitely.)

I have a prototype of this class in my dump patch.
