Have you considered removing the direct write from tar as a bad idea as people over write it all the time with formatted data on hard disks and even tapes using a different program that uses a file system as the direct write doesnÂ’t show up.    The streaming function could be moved to a separate program that reads a specified file and streams it to a location or device.    This would work with multimedia on internet servers which would just read locations to stream to from a pipe with a add or drop so a common file could be sent to multiple addresses.
