OK, I started to document the rest of the star format. It is more than
twice the amount it was yeaterday but it is still far from being complete...


BTW: I am not sure if ot makes sense to write a tar implementation in
an interpreter language as you seem to do. The speed of such a beast nowerdays
mainly depend on the efficience of handling archive headers. Star is higly
optimized for doing so even from the perspective of a C program.
