In practice, the tarfile bug only affects a very small percentage of
packages (they need to contain a file member with a '/' character in the
100th position in its name). Anybody who builds a package which
generates such a name will just (eventually, anyway) figure out to use
zipfile: for everybody else, the distinction is meaningless.
