Of course, I have plenty of places to point my finger.
So I stupidly volunteered to take over maintainership, since the last author was MIA for well, 3 years. It's only then you realise exactly what can of worms you precisely opened;
For example, it had no idea what '././@LongLink' files were , plus it had interesting code in it like:
I hear you thinking, "but sureley the test suite would have caught that".. but if you're smart you don't bring that up to my face
I'll try and refrain myself from rants on the tar-format but trust me, it's really quite screwy.
It feels much like a '512 bytes should be enough for everyone'-quote
In the end I decided a complete rewrite was probably best, since every bug fix on the old code made me find two more bugs.
So right now, there's a totally rewritten version on the CPAN which should be fixing all these nasty things.
I invite everyone to bash it some, so we can hopefully take out all the bugs, and enjoy the new features
 I hope you don't either, but if you must know
