   BTW, what does our pax do?  Wasn't there talk of subsituting that for
   GNU tar sometime this year?

our pax(1) has a fully working tar(1) front end.  just link it and
away you go... however, its cpio(1) front end isn't quite fully
functional... (most of the code is there, it just doesn't entirely
work).  ideally, both GNU tar and GNU cpio will go away ...
