Fellas, can you fix these in tar-mode.el so they don't trip up us long
standing ls -l users' brains:
  ((eq type 1) ?l)      ; link
how about H for hardlink

  ((eq type 2) ?s)      ; symlink
how about l like in ls, otherwise looks like setuid stuff

  ((eq type 3) ?c)      ; char special
  ((eq type 4) ?b)      ; block special
  ((eq type 5) ?d)      ; directory
  ((eq type 6) ?p)      ; FIFO/pipe
these are already like in ls, good.

Ben> This is what tar-mode produces for symlinks.  It's not a bug.
