hmmm... junkzip is a nice name :)
try to find a better option char: (source: tar.c)
/* Parse the options for tar. */
/* Available option letters are DEHJQY and aenqy. Some are reserved:
e exit immediately with a nonzero exit status if unexpected errors occur
E use extended headers (draft POSIX headers, that is)
n the archive is quickly seekable, so don't worry about random seeks
q stop after extracting the first occurrence of the named file
y per-file gzip compression
Y per-block gzip compression */
#define OPTION_STRING \
just my $0.02.
