Not until I get some ideas on what would work better on more platforms...

Well, can't "uncompress" work with gzip'd files? I recall that it can, but that
may have been on a box (Dec Alpha?) with some upgraded "uncompress" capabilities.
If it can work, then we should do something like
uncompress -c file.tar.gz | tar xf -
to get away from any non-generic utilities. Is zcat (== uncompress -c) standard
on all machines?
btw, for generating the docs tar files I used "--exclude='*.sgml'" options on
tar. Is that gnu-specific also?
