er... why should that fail?

Well, tested with tar on DragonFly:

touch testfile
chmod 444 !$
chmod 444 testfile
tar cvf testthat.tar testfile
a testfile
rm testfile
override r--r--r--  fgudin/fgudin for testfile? y
tar xvf testthat.tar
x testfile
tar xvf testthat.tar
x testfile: Can't create 'testfile'
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

I /assume/ that another tar (GNU) would act so ?
Of course, when root is extracting, it by-passes permissions check, IIUC.

to dfly-pkg-people@: does any of you know ?

Btw: could I be added to this alias ?

Tnx in advance,
