i don't know how you can make this claim. are you simply
ignoring that others have a problem you haven't seen?
people's upgrades are breaking now in ways they never have

argue that bsdtar should actually match the features of
pax-as-tar, and then we can all benefit from the change.

rejected as being irrelevant.
we can do better. i like christos' patch. there's some
nuance with the symlink vs security issue, but there is
only clear additional failure cases with the unlink vs
