It would be a great option to create an archive in an optomized file order, such that subdirectory entries are entered first within a directory. That would be optomized when, for example, find is recursing and takes advantage of a directory's link count to, when possible, only stat enough entries to account for all subdirectories.

Certainly this really has nothing to do with tar, but it seems to be a nice fit since doing it outside of tar is pretty slow, as you could see with the attached script.



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
