      Description

      We have now ported all of maven to use commons compress. When a user is running tar compression, we may sometimes fail because the selected tar format does not support big numbers.

      In this context we'd like to help our users by informing them that there may be other tar formats than can be more suitable. I would request that this method throw some specialized subclass of RuntimeException that we can catch to identify this particular error condition, so we can talk to our users about their options
