      Description

      We already parse PAX headers and the star/GNU tar/BSD tar dialects used for big
      entries.

      Similar to the way we handle long file names there should be a user option to chose
      between "error", "star" and "posix" or "pax". "star" is Jörg Schilling's tar which was the
      first one to use the binary size representation later adopted by GNU and BSD tar as well.
