Dear Sergey,

fist of all many thanks for contributing such great and important software
to the community!

I am wondering if there are any plans to support the LGPL 7-Zip compression
format besides the already supported compress, gzip and bzip2 formats.
>From my point of view it is already very stable and useful, i.e. the
Wikipedia database is downloadable in the 7z format since a few weeks.

I believe that the acceptance would grow even faster if GNU tar would
support a 7z archive filter.


Best regards,
René Leonhardt
