tar -I incompatibility


the Author of tar changed the --bzip option again. This time its even
worse than the last time, since -I is still a valid option but with a
totally different meaning.

This totally changes the behaviour of tar and I would consider that a
critical bug, since backup software does break horribly with the new

Any good reason not to whack the author with a 50 pound unix manual
and revert the changes?
