> Right now the tar classes handle ustar and oldgnu (and to a certain degree pax) but there
are way more dialects out there.  In particular we should support the POSIX format.
> https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=25704 in Ant's bug tracker contains
code that is supposed to support the Solaris variant (of 2003).
> So far I've only seen people ask for POSIX but not contributing patches.
