New submission from Steve Barnes:

I would like to add to the command line of both tarfile and zipfile interface 
some additional options that I believe to be useful.

1. Wildcard filename matching for archiving
2. Recursive archiving (with excludes)
3. Append to archive option
4. Compression Selection
 4.1 For zipfile: zip64, bizp2 & lzma (if available)
 4.2 For tarfile: document that gz, xz & bz2 are there and determined by ext.
