Bug#174308: star should become standard tar

man star

"Star includes the first free implementation of  POSIX.1-2001
     extended  tar headers. The extended tar headers define a new
     standard way for going beyond the limitations  of  the  his-
     toric  tar format.  They allow (among others) to archive all
     UNIX time stamps in sub-second resolution,  files  of  arbi-
     trary  size  and  filenames  without length limitation using
     UNICODE UTF-8 coding for best exchange compatibility."
