Well, for telling truth, I agree it's small, or seem to be small, but in
my opinion it works quite nice (with medium-large archives) and can be
usefull. I'm not convinced if it would work well in group of
other tools (as Eduard Bloch has written) because it requires a specific
alias for tar and manpage read ;) despite its simplicity.
