in reply to Archive::Ar - pure perl way to handle Ar archives (comments encouraged)

I don't know if this works - away from my trusty Linuxbox - but it is a good idea. A pure perl Archive::Zip would be a really _brilliant_ idea - great for app packaging.

A few comments just from reading the source:

I'm just looking for nitpicks, you understand. It seems like very nice, clear code.
