.cwp is hardly protection, it's just as, or more, vulnerable to Winzip
improvements. .deb and .rpm are more resilient, but hardly beyond access

There shouldn't be any strdups elsewhere, I recall now why I hadn't
changed fromcwd.cc's strdup calls - because the code was commented out.
Having actually looked closely at this, I'm inclined to add a FIXME line
rather than your patch - not because your code is wrong, but because the
structs you are operating on are gone! (There's no info struct, and no
trust enum any more...).

No, I think bz2 will last us until .deb or rpm is ready. And we
shouldn't try to read something we can't :]. However your patch still
looks wrong because it removes the .tar support - which costs us nothing
to have, and may be useful for someone :}.
