Support writing entries > 8GiB in tar

                 Key: COMPRESS-165
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.3
            Reporter: Stefan Bodewig

We already parse PAX headers and the star/GNU tar/BSD tar dialects used for big

Similar to the way we handle long file names there should be a user option to chose
between "error", "star" and "posix" or "pax".  "star" is Jörg Schilling's tar which was the
first one to use the binary size representation later adopted by GNU and BSD tar as well.
