Not sure ...extraction appears NOT to be a problem ... (yes, the same

On the other hand, the "big" archive file might indicate there is room
for improvement ...
However, it might be so that the person who wrote the script believes
that she/he can only rely on Lamport's clock:
The "version" of the file, that survives the extraction process, will
be the one that was last appended to the archive file ...
See 126.96.36.199 Multiple Members with the Same Name.
Of course, I am just guessing ... that is why I wrote: I am curious.
