For what it's worth, I'd submitted a patch (attached) to Gottox, the
guy who wrote sltar, which added creation support, but he never wound
up applying it.

With that, and pipes to gzip, or bzip2, you can have all the tar
functionality you know and love.

But, at the same time, plan9 tar works well, and doesn't suck.
