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 an alias
for tar and manpage read ;) despite its simplicity.
