I've just uploaded a fully rewritten version of Archive::Tar to CPAN.
None of the old (and slightly scary :) code remains, allthough fully 
backwards compatible.

It fixes all open bugs that were in or mailed to me 
personally, as well as adding a few new features.

I've marked it 'development release' so can do their
foo first before i overwrite current stable for everyone.

Tested succesfully on Mac OS X and classic, win32 and freebsd.

Hopefully this makes it safe for CPAN(?:PLUS) and possibly other 
modules to rely on it again.

If anyone with a testing mind likes to have a pick at it, I'd be 
gratefull, so we can pick out any (possible) new bugs before marking it 
'stable' on CPAN.

Again, just FYI :)
