It'll have some _bad_ features:
If ``find'' will found to many files (default number of arguments to be passed
by xargs to the ``utility'' (the tar command) is 5000, the default size of
the command line is MAX_ARG (2048 bytes) //from man xargs), then xargs will
run the ``utility'' twice, or more times,... consider it will be a very small
differenses in time, you'll get that the last tar invocation 'll replace your
archievs with that time stamp.
