Earlier today I talked with a guy on irc about debian packages.
He told me that a .DEB-file isn't just a renamed .TAR.GZ-file but also
been thru 'ar'.

To be more specific, is the files first tar:ed, gzip:ed and then ar:ed?

I really can't find any reason why 'ar' should be used, since tar and
gzip should do be able to archive a package enough?
