I've rebased this and started working on tests in a branch on NifiLocal. If you have any WIPs
for tests, could you send them to me?

> Create an FocusArchive processor which implements a lens over an archive (tar, etc.).
A concise, though informal, definition of a lens is as follows:
> "Essentially, they represent the act of “peering into” or “focusing in on” some
particular piece/path of a complex data object such that you can more precisely target particular
operations without losing the context or structure of the overall data you’re working with."
> Why an FocusArchive in MiNiFi? Simply put, it will enable us to "focus in on" an entry
in the archive, perform processing *in-context* of that entry, then re-focus on the overall
archive. This allows for transformation or other processing of an entry in the archive without
losing the overall context of the archive.
> Initial format support is tar, due to its simplicity and ubiquity.
> Attributes:
> - Path (the path in the archive to focus; "/" to re-focus the overall archive)
