So I've to change the shell command

   tar -t -f archive1.tar | my_filter_filename_list | \
   tar -c -f archive2.tar --files-from=- --no-recursion


   tar -t -f archive1.tar | my_filter_filename_list | \
   (while IFS='' read -r file
    do printf '--add-file %s\n' "$file"
   ) | \
   tar -c -f archive2.tar --files-from=- --no-recursion

?  Please revert this change as it will break existing applications of
gnu-tar.  A new option, e.g. --actions-from, to be used rather than
--files-from with the new semantics, may be added, though.
